Cherokee Font Mystery
The Tetrast and I are trying to solve a puzzle here. Yesterday I posted in a comment some material written in Cherokee, which I copied from the Cherokee version of Wikipedia. It ought to look like the screen capture above: at least, that's how it looks on my computer. But the Tetrast reports that on his computer he can't get it to display properly. Not even after downloading and installing a Cherokee font.
I'm just scratching my head here. There are several free Cherokee fonts available out there. Some time in this past year I downloaded and installed one of these fonts, can't remember which one. And ever since, I've been able to see Cherokee just fine in my browser.
I look in the two places on my system (Linux, to make matters worse) where most of my fonts are located, can't find that Cherokee font. It probably has some utterly nonobvious filename. In the Opera browser, under International Fonts, I find Cherokee set to "Automatic." I even went into the font controller in the Mandriva Control Center, can't find that Cherokee font. It's there somewhere on my computer, but I can't track it down.
Does anyone out there have any ideas? After sleeping on it, the only other idea that occurs to me is to change encoding selection in one's browser from "Automatic" to "Unicode."
