Euro sign problem


#1

I’ve got some code that works perfectly on both Windows & Mac when using the standard font. I’ve embedded a special font into my app. But when using that font, only on Windows is the Euro sign shown well, on Mac it just shows some chinese sign instead, which looks like 2 lightnights over 2 horizontal lines on the bottom.

Well if you just wait long enough the Euro is probably going to go bust (along with the US dollar) and this will be a non-problem.

For a slightly quicker solution, I guess adding the Euro symbol to your custom font would be the best fix!


#4

But, if the Euro sign is not in the custom font, why does it show up on Windows (with that font) ?


#5

The windows glyph engine can substitute missing characters, but the mac one can’t.

Ok, now that explains a lot.
