      Shown are Hindi, Kannada, Nuu-chah-nulth, Tamil, and Yoruba, whose glyphs rely on combining characters. However, they render as separate characters (notice the dotted circles), rather than appearing on top of adjacent characters, causing the text to be borderline unreadable.

      Bengali, Kildin Sami, and Yiddish are also affected. Consequently, this also affects other Indic languages, languages that require the extended Cyrillic character set with macrons (а̄ е̄ о̄ я̄ э̄ ю̄) and those with diacritics; moreover, potential new languages that are not yet translated on Minecraft Crowdin but cannot be supported otherwise, for example, Eudeve with macron below characters like a̱ e̱ i̱ o̱ u̱.
