we use freefont to display Bengali; quite a few Indic languages are now supported
from freefont now.

Yes, freefont has Bengali support. You sent us these [2], [3], [4]
screenshots using freefonts [8] - which had no rendering problems at

Currently I am using it [9] in Dapper - no rendering problem.

Which version are you using?

We used Mukti in the past and also had positive feedback with freefont; if you think
using Mukti would be more appropriate we could strip Bengali glyphs from freefont
and switch back to Mukti.

Previous shots of MuktiNarrow [5], [6], [7] was fine. I think
MuktiNarrow *should* be used. :)
