Windows CE 6.0 font localization question- Unicode character missing in Font RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we are in the middle of  adding localization support for French language to our instruments.

    The fonts included in the image are "Courrier New (Subset 1_30)" and "Tahoma "Subset 1_07)".

    These fonts seem to not include Unicode chararcter 0x202f (NARROW NO-BREAK SPACE) used in French before certain punctuation characters, e.g. ? or !.

    What is the best way of adding this character to the fonts/image or am I simply missing some settings either sysgen or registry?

    Thanks in advance.

  • The best way is to use a font that already has it. Typically you're violating a copyright by modifying a font. There are certainly TTF editors out there and you could use one of those. Doesn't choosing French as one of the target OS languages include a more-complete font?

  • Hi Paul,

    thanks for your reply.

    Unfortunately we cannot change the font family since UI, manual, ect. have been tailored to Tahoma.

    We solved the issue, by using a font editor and creating our own proprietary font containing the character symbol and use font-linking to display the character.

    Thanks again for your help.
