#9806 closed defect (duplicate)

Broken display of accented characters

Reported by: haruman Owned by: datallah
Milestone: Component: winpidgin (gtk)
Version: 2.5.8 Keywords:


Running on Vista installed in French, Pidgin has difficulties to display accented characters when chatting with a friend on MSN.

When I copy paste the received text from the chat window or the archive window, I can see accented charters properly:

(09:45:58) d: bravo, moi je ss plutôt nature, là.. c'est que mes enfants sont chez leur père, , et j'adore me laisser un peu aller, quand ils ne sont pas là

a screen shot is attached, to see how garbled it is...

This is a font problem.

If you know which fonts should be added to the fallback list, please let me know
