If you're running a Windows system that uses a character set
other than US/Western Europe (such as Windows Eastern European or
Cyrillic), please read this note.
If you have any problems with HTML TADS displaying characters that
are supposed to be from the US/Western Europe character set,
but are instead displayed as characters from your system's default
character set, you might need to adjust your system configuration to
remove "font substitutions." Many non-US/Western Europe systems use
font substitutions as a way to work around older applications that
don't have proper localized character set support, but the
substitutions can interfere with applications like HTML TADS that
do properly support localized character sets.
To check for font substitutions, look at your WIN.INI file (usually
in your C:\WINDOWS directory). Look for a line that starts with
"[fontsubstitutes]", then look for lines like this:
(The second number might be something other than 238.) If you find
any lines like this, you might want to try deleting them or commenting
them out (by putting a semicolon, ";", at the start of each line).
You might need to reboot your system before your changes take effect.
Windows NT users: On NT, the font substitutions are
specified in the registry rather than in WIN.INI. Run REGEDIT and
look for a registry key with this path:
