Namaste,

There are various new fonts added to the list of specified fonts for messages.

If you don't have a particular font installed, then text will be displayed in the default font-face. And for Windows systems the default for Devanagari will probably be Mangal ~ and if you don't have Mangal (or some equivalent) then the Devanagari text may not be displayed at all.

For Mac systems I have no idea how any of these fonts appear, and perhaps there are more appropriate fonts for Mac users ~ any comments?
