Description Lars Stea 2004-03-02 17:58:00 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040124

Description of problem:
When installing a fresh Fedora Core 1 I can successfuly use the
norwegian (scandinavian) letters �� and �. When uppgrading with yum as
described on www.fedoranews.org it stops working. When using the
Evolution mail-client the some wierd tv-antennalike signs shows up at
the recieving end instead of ���. I see nothing unusual on my screen.
It works fine in KDE apps and when using mozilla-mail. If this bug is
filed at the wrong location, please don't get annoyed, just kindly
point me in the right direction.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.install fedora core1
2.uppgrade as told by www.fedoranews.org with yum or up2date
3.send somebody an e-mail with evolution, or another gnome program

Actual Results:  Instead of ��� these letters pop up:
ø        æ        å

Expected Results:  ���

Additional info:

I'm using evolution-1.4.5-7

Now i'm amazed: when the bugzilla wizard rendered this form,
everything became the otherway around and every æøå (these look fine
as I write) bocomes questionmarks in mozilla and the antennas bekome æøå.

taking a wild guess at the right component.

Sounds like a locale issue, honestly.  Does this still happen for you in
something more recent than FC1?
