Description Kjartan Maraas 2001-02-13 15:54:41 UTC
If you choose for example czechoslovakian language and try to go back to 
choose another language, you're left with the font that was chosen for the 
first language. Some of the buttons also have the old languages' labels on

Not sure this can be fixed.

Comment 2 Matt Wilson 2001-02-19 22:33:02 UTC
should be fixed in the next tree.

Comment 3 Brock Organ 2001-02-20 19:05:12 UTC
this is still not fixed ... ie the default screen font for english seems to be a
non-bold Times-ish type font (10 pt? 12 pt?) ... choosing czech as a language,
advancing to the next screen ... now the default screen font is a courier-ish
bold font ... return to the language screen ... choose english, advance to the
next screen ... instead of the original times-ish non-bold font english had
originally, the font is still the courier-ish bold font ...

Note, this doesn't seem to affect the installer adversely (for example, when
changing between different charsets, the appropriate charset always seems to be
displayed) ... ie choose english -> russian -> japanese -> english; the proper
charsets are displayed, but the final english font is different from the initial
english font ...
