[text-install] Disk druid doesn't display international characters correctly
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:56 EDT
Running a text install using Swedish as the language, Disk druid doesn't
display Swedish characters. It replaces all of them with question marks.
It's only Disk Druid that does this though.

Disk Druid in Pinstripe now displays, instead of question marks, the
replacements "aa" for a-ring, "ae" for a-umlaut and "oe" for o-umlaut.
That solution is NOT sufficient!
An additional comment might be appropriate here - reportedly, this affects all
languages using ISO-8859 character sets (see the duplicates), and it might be
worth it to fix this before release.
Same thing with Slovenian language.
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Florance current CVS doesn't exhibit this behavior. I se a-ring, (c),
A-umlaunt, and a-umlanunt without problem.
TUI-NFS, GUI-NFS,Swedish installation -- no funny chars on Disk Druid screen.
