    OK, so the fact that exactly the same behaviour (i.e. with Arial
    Unicode MS selected only Oriya digits are displayed) is seen in
    Notepad with Uniscribe version 1.409.2600.1106 and later (but not with
    Uniscribe version 1.405.2416.1 or earlier) is a bug in Notepad ?! What
    you seem to be saying is that every single MS product that relies on
    Uniscribe for complex script rendering should have special code
    written in to overcome the deficiencies of certain versions of
    Uniscribe, even when the deficiencies did not exist when the code was
    written. Wow!
