Description bernd.hentig 1998-12-04 11:04:05 UTC
When selecting Language "GERMAN" from the installation menu,
the boxes around the menu selections change to ISO8859-1
characters (unreadable), thus making the whole installation
procedure look very unprofessional.

Testes Hardware: DEC Multia

Comment 1 Jay Turner 1998-12-09 18:47:59 UTC
The fonts used for German and some other languages don't have the
special characters to make the smoth lines, and there's not much that
can be done about it.
