As I understand it, the fonts which support vitually all unicode
characters are called "pan-unicode" font. You can read about this more
Further, the following link gives pointers to fonts that supports
Finally there is a small typo in the pdf file for Hindi Language : the
"i" in shanti has been a bit misplaced. (the glyph for i : U+093F
should occur before the code for t. )But I guess this is the problem
specific to the font-rendering engine of your authoring application,

hope this helps,
