Eastern European font shows up garbled
Thread poster: Anne76

Jun 21, 2004

Dear all,
Can anybody advise me on how to avoid eastern European letters (Polish, Czech) from showing up garbled, when converting from rtf file to mif file (Framemaker)? E.g. the Z with accent won't show up correctly.
Thank you!

You need to adapt fonts in Framemaker Jun 21, 2004

For example use Arial CE for all texts, formatted with Arial.
If your document ist formatted with Helvetica or other fonts, which do not show as CE, ask you customer, which font he prefers.

Take care of t-Caron and Z-Akute Jul 20, 2004

Please note that FrameMaker has a wrong internal mapping of two CE characters. These are the t-Caron () and the Z-Akute (). If you create MIFs from RTFs/TTX with S-Tagger these characters will be lost. You are not able to show them within FrameMaker unless you have the special CodePage-Patch from a company called itl.
