Font configuration for unsupported languages

Zulip uses the Source Sans 3 font, which supports over 30 languages. If Source Sans 3 does not support your language, you may need to configure your browser to use a different font or adjust the default font size to properly display all the characters. See the documentation for Chrome, Firefox, or Edge for more information on how to configure your browser's default font.
