Font names is not relevant for properly UTF* encoded text.


IF you had tried to understand Unicode (the encoding system, not the
organisation), you would have realised that Unicode will work with any
compliant font wich contains the requisite glyphs.

I really admire the patience and preservance of you "white skinned
Americans and Europeans". It is really difficult to deal with people
who will refuse to understand what Unicode is, and how it works.

But I do not know Sinhala. If your language has problems, please
enumerate them.
