I've been asked on the Wikimedia India mailing list whether WebFonts
work on the mobile sites, and frankly, i didn't know what to say.
I'm not even sure what the mobile sites *are* now. If i browse from my
laptop to https://ta.m.wikipedia.org
, am i supposed to see what a user
who browses to https://ta.wikipedia.org
from his phone sees?
If that is the situation, then most Wikipedias in Indic languages are
probably not properly configured to support the mobile site. I found
actual content only on Tamil (ta), Marathi (mr) and, somewhat
surprisingly, Sanskrit (sa). All the other Wikipedias only show a
search box and some boilerplate text, although most of it is
Is it worth the effort to tell the local admins there to make the
necessary configuration or is the mobile site going to change soon?
