Description Sébastien Pierre 2004-05-11 04:05:52 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040506

Description of problem:
Some accented characters (like "�" == eacute) appear as dotted squares
with LANG=fr_FR.

When they are directly typed, they appear as the proper character, but
when they are ouputted by a program (like man), they appear as dotted
squares.

I use the MiscFixed font for my terminal, but the problem remains with
other fonts.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gnome-terminal-2.6.0-2

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open a gnome terminal
2. Set LANG to fr_FR
3. type echo $POUET
    

Actual Results:  POUET: Variable pas d[]finie

where [] is the dotted square

Expected Results:  POUET: Variable pas d�finie

Hi,
I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem?
