Answers
1. Which all browsers support Malayalam dynamic fonts? 
The Manorama Online site is using dynamic fonts and hence, it is not necessary to download the fonts for specific browsers. 

Browsers that support Manorama Online site with dynamic fonts are Internet Explorer 5.5 or above for Windows and Netscape 4.x (Windows, Macintosh, Unix). 

Note that Internet Explorer for Macintosh and Netscape 6 and 7 for any operating system do not currently support dynamic fonts. 

Download font for PC 

Download font for Mac 
2. I am not able to print the manoramanews site. Why? 
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5.5 for Windows does not fully support dynamic fonts for printing. When you try to print or print preview pages using Web fonts from Internet Explorer 5.5 for Windows, you do not get the dynamic font in the print preview or on printout. It appears that Internet Explorer dynamically rebuilds the page on the fly, stripping out the Web font tags. This prevents the dynamic fonts from printing. 

To print dynamic fonts in Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 for Windows, click the print icon on the toolbar. Do not choose File > Print. 
3. Why is the site appearing with junk characters? 
a) Check your browser version. Make sure you are using Internet Explorer 5.5 and above (Windows) or Netscape 4.x (Windows, Macintosh, Unix) to view dynamic fonts. For all other browser and operating system, please download the font by clicking on the below links and copy to your fonts directory (For Windows, got to Start -> Control Panel -> Fonts) 

b) Change the document encoding settings to 'User Defined' and reload the site. 

On Internet Explorer 5.5 or above, right click the mouse button, choose Encoding and then choose User Defined from the list. 

On the Netscape View menu, choose Character Set/Encoding and choose “User Defined” 

c) However, some users may have problems with the font due to some configuration issues or due to poor connectivity. Sometimes just pressing 'refresh' works. 

If the problem persists, follow the below steps. 

Step 1. Remove any fonts ('Mano.ttf') that you may have previously downloaded. Go To Start - Control Panel - Fonts - Remove fonts. 

Step 2. Download Font (by clicking on the above links) and save in your Fonts directory. (For Windows, got to Start -> Control Panel -> Fonts)
