This works for me here with current packages.  What version of evolution and
gtkhtml do you have installed?  And what did you select for font style and size?

Comment 2 Tom Vergote 2003-02-12 22:04:36 UTC

helvetica (adobe)
style: iso 10646-1 medium
size 12 pixels

i don't know if it's really a bug because it warns it's a 2-byte font

Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2003-02-13 06:13:55 UTC
This looks better to me with evolution 1.2.2 and gtkhtml 1.1.8, but it will
depend a lot on some other things as well, and if it doesn't work, there's
really not much that can be done about it when dealing with gtk+ 1.2
