Description of problem:
When I press Shift+3 in gnome-terminal, a UK Pound sign is not shown.
See screenshot.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Shift+3 in gnome-terminal

Additional info:

Here's the text pasted from the screenshot. Note the odd character does paste as
a pound sign, so gnome-terminal is not displaying it correctly.

[root@localhost root]# 1 ! 2 " 3 � 4 $ 5 %

Comment 2 Havoc Pennington 2003-04-28 20:04:50 UTC
Your font probably doesn't have pound sign, and vte doesn't do fontsetting yet
(fallback fonts for chars not present in current font)

Comment 3 Need Real Name 2003-11-19 22:26:52 UTC
Is this fixed in Fedora Core 1?

Comment 4 Nalin Dahyabhai 2003-11-20 21:04:59 UTC
Yes, it should be.  Fontsetting was implemented in an earlier 0.11
version than was included in FC1, so it's in there.  One of the
documentation files (/usr/share/doc/vte-0.11.10/iso2022.txt) can be
catted to demonstrate this.  Closing.  Thanks!
