Description Christian Rose 2000-07-22 21:00:21 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.

Comment 3 Christian Rose 2000-08-01 18:55:21 EDT
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!
Comment 4 Christian Rose 2000-08-01 18:59:44 EDT
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.
Comment 6 Glen Foster 2001-01-11 16:14:27 EST
This defect is considered MUST-FIX for Florence Gold release
Comment 7 Matt Wilson 2001-01-18 17:00:20 EST
Florance current CVS doesn't exhibit this behavior.  I se a-ring, (c),
A-umlaunt, and a-umlanunt without problem.
