Support for ASCII "Symbol" font

Reported by: jayrobers Owned by: lschiere
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.4.1 Keywords:


Is there support for the Symbol font in Pidgin? I noticed whenever I try to view a profile that has Greek letters (in Symbol font, not an actual Greek font) they display as normal English letters.

This isn't something that pidgin itself has any control over; all font handling is done by GTK+/Pango. The problem with the Symbol font is that it doesn't actually contain correct glyph mappings (see upstream report), so there isn't a whole lot that can be done with it.
