    For a while now I've had this problem, but as I'm studying Hindi I need to solve it now.

    In Safari, or Mail or Pages or any Carbon application instead of showing different characters I just see the same one: द I can't even be sure you'll see the same one I just typed, because no matter what I type (or which Hindi web page I open) I only see that same character.

    Everything I've read says this is automatic from 10.3 onward - yet I can't get it working in my updated-Leopard. In System Preferences -> International I have Devanagari and Devanagari Qwerty both clicked and can choose those as Input text, but it all comes out as the same character.

    Help! (I posted this same thing on discussions.apple.com - sorry if anyone reads it twice).

    Solved it with help from discussions.apple.com - basically somehow the font got uninstalled. DL'd this and installed it into Fonts and I'm up and running.

    Now I just need to learn Hindi :)

    नमस्ते
