Seeing square blocks instead of Greek characters

Post by Mike Baber » May 30th, 2011, 11:30 pm

This is only happening for some letters. I probably have just about every Greek font known to man installed on my C: drive, so what could be the problem?

What Web browser?

Make sure it's using Unicode. On Firefox 4: View | Character Encoding | Unicode (UTF-8)

This works by default for me on current Firefox and Chrome, but I'm on Linux. Are you perhaps using an older Web browser?

I was using my PC at home which has IE 8. I'll have to double check to make sure I have UTF-8 selected. You're a Linux man, eh? Which one are you running? I'm running Ubuntu 10.04 on a dual-partitioned hard drive with good ol' Windows 7.

I'm on Fedora 14 - I also have a Windows box, but I don't use it much.
