Hi,

Yeah, lots of discrepancies, mostly due to copying tables and inadequate testing. My test script isn't working right -- I think it should have picked those up.

I fixed all the cases I could find. Let me see if you see more.

Thanks!

The fraction slash has some problems in FreeSans in the Bengali script.

In FreeSans, kerning with the slash is disabled when the language is Sanskrit.

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: 300px FreeSans">%E0%A6%95 4%E2%81%849<br><span lang="sa">%E0%A6%95 4%E2%81%849

In FreeSans Oblique, fractions are disabled in Sanskrit.

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: oblique 300px FreeSans">%E0%A6%95 4%E2%81%849<br><span lang="sa">%E0%A6%95 4%E2%81%849

In FreeSans Bold and FreeSans Bold Oblique, fractions are disabled regardless of the language. This is likely because those fonts don’t support Bengali, but in that case it is odd that they have lookup entries for 'beng' and 'bng2'.

data:text/html;charset=utf-8,<div style="font: bold 300px FreeSans">%E0%A6%95 4%E2%81%849<br><span lang="sa">%E0%A6%95 4%E2%81%849
