As of now, Latin characters in Meera font goes higher than Malayalam glyphs and Malayalam glyphs go lower than Latin glyphs. This means effective size of the glyph increases (ascent and descent values). This means bigger size for panels and title bars compared to English locale.

See https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=590586

If we lower the baseline for Latin glyphs this could be avoided. I think we don't do this normally, this could be an experiment to see how it will look.

See screenshots attached. The second screenshot is with 'A' lowered.

Please comment on this idea.
