UTF8 characters not displayed - r1ctus - 2009-10-03 19:47
i don't know if this has been posted yet, but some non-english characters are not displayed. i have this problem with letters 'ő' and 'ű'. i know most people use XBMC in English, so this might not be top priority, but it would be nice to see it fixed. another (small) problem is that non-english characters are in some texts displayed lower than english characters.

What language is that? Can you tell me what symbol is missing where theres a square?

Hungarian language, squares are 'ő' and 'ű'

Great, great skin!!!
I have also a problem with non English characters. I have configured a greek (utf-8) rss feed in the home page : http://www.naftemporiki.gr/news/static/rss/news.xml
The Greek characters as shown as squares: http://img42.imageshack.us/i/20091005201658.png/
In PM3.HD they are shown ok: (yeah, I know it's Greek to you ;-) , but you will recognise the letters from mathematics...) http://img75.imageshack.us/i/20091005201804c.png/
So, Greek are not covered in the rapier fonts. Is there a workaround to use the default media\Fonts\arial.ttf instead?
Can you tell me which font <name> in Rapier\720p\fonts.xml is used for the RSS feed?
Do I have to copy arial.ttf in Rapier\fonts for this to work?

Czech letters Ř Ě and Ť are "squared" too.

You can replace all the fonts in fonts folder with the one you desire. Change the font names exactly how I have it and change font sizes in font.xml
It won't look like how I want it to especially because I use caps font in some areas but it should do for now.

I want it to look like, the way YOU want it, too ! ;-)
That's why I would like to change ONLY the font for the RSS feed.
If you could tell me which is the <name> of the rss font in fonts.xml, I would replace only this one with arial.ttf
