hello plusminus,
thanks for reply..
yes other charachters are displayed in new fonts but hindi characters are not displaying.
In place of hindi characters squares are showing.
and when i change the fonts to comic sans(for testing) english characters are change to comic but squares are still there in place of hindi content.
In main application view even comic sans are not applied.
basically i want to display unicode character in Edit Text and in application window.

what should i do?
is android emulator is not compatible with hindi script?
Thanks.

Hello prashant,

looks like it is not. Perhaps the next update will contain an enhancement in this issue, as a lot were complaining about missing character support.

Problem is in font files. Android just use ttf font and its letters. TTF file is a container with
describing some of letters. Lot of fonts have only english letters and dont known anything about
cyryllic, hindi etc. So you need find a font with all need letters.
