Greek Font Problem
« on: July 20, 2006, 03:36:58 PM »
I'm using Firefox, with a whole bunch of different Greek fonts (and a few chant fonts, too :) ) installed, and yet there are some users on this forum who are using Greek letters for their user names (for example Aristoklis if I'm transcribing correctly), and I just get garbage font.  What font should I have installed for this to work?

Not that it will provide much insight, but Monachos.net works fine, but I know they specify SPIonic.

Not sure. I use Firefox as well, but under Win98 and 2000. All I did was set Firefox to Unicode (UTF-8), if I even did that, and installed Greek as a language/keyboard in Windows. But then I'm on ancient equipment, AncientFaith.

And I too have many (too many) Greek fonts, but don't use them here.

I'll have this fixed in the next release coming soon. There were some known utf-8 issues.

There are? Not good news when I'm trying to install Chinese support here. (Demetri and his big ideas...)
