I have typed my Telugu text here using firefox browser
and pasted it into OpenOffice Writer 3.1 with Lohit Telugu font version 2.4.5
Everything seem to be working fine though the newer Lohit font looks smaller
than an older version of Lohit font I was using earlier.

But the main problem here is, a dash (-) becomes an empty space. It looks like
a long space that is equivalent two chars approx.
I also tried to type a dash right in the OO but it doesn't work.

If I select Pothana2000 font instead of Lohit in OO, all my dashes work fine.
The Pothana2000 is another Unicode font for Telugu but I love the rounded
letter shapes of Lohit font so much!

Thanks a lot for this beautiful Lohit Telugu font.
