Description of problem:
Text in the message headers box at the top of a message and text in the Summary
has a character that looks like a box between each letter. Also text that is
part rendered from html has the same problem. Normal text from a plain text
message doesn't have this problem.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Evolution
2. Run Evolution
3. View the Summary screen

Actual Results:  Text on the Summary screen has a character that looks like a
box between each letter.

Expected Results:  Text to look normal without the character boxes.

Comment 1 Nathan G. Grennan 2002-07-05 10:34:13 UTC
Well, I fussed and fussed with it. Tried downgrading evolution and most of the
libraries it depends on. None of that had any effect. Finally I found the way to
change the fonts through HTML Viewer and after trying various combinations for
the screen fonts I found I could get rid of the boxes. So I have found a
workaround, but there still seems to be a bug in evolution or one of it's
supporting libraries. Probably related to the switch to UTF-8 support in this beta.

The  75 and 100dpi core fonts were left out of the comps file on accident. 
Installing the XFree86-75dpi-fonts and XFree86-100dpi-fonts packages and
restarting xfs should fix the problem (note that you'll also need to killev to
make sure none of the components pick up the old fonts).  Comps file is fixed in CVS
