    The text in your screenshots looks to me like it might be Arial Unicode MS. As I explained earlier, this font does not provide shaping support for all scripts. That is a font issue, not an issue with IE.

    AFAIK, the Windows core fonts (Microsoft Sans Serif, Tahoma, Arial, Times New Roman, Courier New) have never included digits for any Indic scripts.
