i read somewhere that there is a restriction in safari on downloads to minimize the risks from viurs/spywares.. is it true ?

I'm not sure about your original question. You can't display something or is it a keyboard question? If a keyboard, you can install the international keyboards from within settings. Now that I think about it, the keyboard download must contain the fonts to or you couldn't see the keys.

Your second question is basically true. Outside of iTunes, your really limited on downloads. That's one of the reasons that everyone gets GoodReader for PDF and other files. It wouldn't help with your fonts question though.

thanks for the reply, im not talking about the key board. i'm talking about the news paper website where the content is in Russian/Indian languages... typically from the normal browsers from PC, we have to install their fonts (one time activity for each language) so that they can displayed properly when viewing those websites. Now when i try to browse the same website thru Safari from my iPad, the fonts are garbled, only way i can view those pages properly by installing the fonts that the website provides, but Safari browser from my ipad is not able to install.. any help is greatly appreciated.
