The T at H installation instructions tell you to install the DejaVu font, a
free font, however, it's coverage, as can be seen here
missing some pretty large chunks that would likely take significantly
more effort than has so far gone into the font to fill... as such, to render
any of the missing languages (listed below) alternative fonts are needed...
Bihari (Devanagari script)
Bhojpuri (Devanagari script)
Hindi (Devanagari script)
Kokani (Devanagari script)
Kashmiri (Devanagari script)
Marathi (Devanagari script)
Nepali (Devanagari script)
Punjabi (Gurumukhi script)
Sanskrit (Devanagari script)
Chinese Hong Kong Supplementary Character Set
Chinese in Macau
Chinese in Singapore
There is at least some overlap with some of those languages, and some of
those will not be in common use, at least for naming, but, that is just a
list from the linked completion report above...
