I see it with Hebrew as well, but not in emacs -Q. With this string:
(taken from a regular expression)
if I place the point at the beginning of the line, I see this:
position: 21767 of 29526 (74%), column: 25
character: ת (displayed as ת) (codepoint 1514, #o2752, #x5ea)
charset: unicode-bmp (Unicode Basic Multilingual Plane
code point in charset: 0x05EA
syntax: w which means: word
category: .:Base, R:Right-to-left (strong)
to input: type "C-x 8 RET 5ea" or "C-x 8 RET HEBREW LETTER TAV"
buffer code: #xD7 #xAA
file code: #xD7 #xAA (encoded by coding system utf-8-unix)
display: by this font (glyph code)
xft:-GNU -FreeSerif-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#x587)
Character code properties: customize what to show
name: HEBREW LETTER TAV
general-category: Lo (Letter, Other)
decomposition: (1514) ('ת')
There are text properties here:
But if I place it at the ܒ, then run (save-excursion (goto-char <position of
the beginning of the string>) (what-cursor-position t)) I see xft:-GNU
-FreeSans-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#x509) instead.
Moving the point to a different line, the font changes again, this time to
xft:-GNU -FreeMono-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1 (#x4FF)
The rest of the what-cursor-position buffer is unchanged.
With the string 'ਸ-ਹਖ਼-ੜਫ਼ੲ-ੴઅ-ઍએ-ઑઓ-નપ-રલ-ળવ-હઽૐૠ-ૡૹଅ-ଌଏ-ଐଓ-ନପ-ରଲ-ଳଵ-ହଽଡ଼-ଢ଼ୟ-',
it is enough to just resize the frame to change from xft:-GNU
-FreeSans-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#x663) to xft:-GNU
-FreeSerif-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#x7F2) (but I had to
set a timer to investigate this one, because moving the point reverted the font
changes caused by resizing the frame.
Additionally, this seems to be linked to face properties. In the
what-cursor-position buffer, I see this:
ਸ (displayed as ਸ) (codepoint 2616, #o5070, #xa38)
^ using one font.
^ using a different font, with font-lock-string-face on it.
… and moving around the what-cursor-position buffer changes the second one, but
not the first one.
