    Hello. I request feedback on the following. Everyone here knows that
    Unicode prescribes the usage of NBSP as a base character for rendering
    spacing versions of combining marks. I am here testing on OpenOffice
    3.1.1 and MS Word 2003 on Windows XP SP 3 and


    does NOT get correctly rendered. I don't think this is a font problem as
    the same behaviour occurs with the default Indic fonts that come with
    Win XP.

    Is this a problem with the rendering engine?
