Pali and Sanskrit words print with "?" instead of correct character in numerous places. I knew that this might be a problem, but I thought that B&N would be aware of this too, and would include the correct fonts in the file as is needed. I should have bought the Kindle edition; they handle this kind of thing better. Frankly, I want my money back, though I don't suppose I should seriously expect to get it.
