I had to attach screenshot, because mentioned characters are wrongly rendered
in the webbrowser ;-)

Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2005-06-21 17:30:02 UTC
The right fix is to port whatever application is still using gtk 1.2 to
gtk 2.x, which offers MUCH better internationalization

Comment 3 Dawid Gajownik 2005-09-28 17:12:46 UTC
No way ;-) I've found the patch, so you can now easyly fix it â

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2005-09-28 21:49:21 UTC
We definitely will not apply that patch, as it is incorrect, however
once someone has implemented the solution suggested by Owen Taylor
in the bug report referenced in comment #3, and it gets checked
into Xorg CVS and does not cause any regressions, we will review
it for consideration in a future update.
