This is somewhat away from the original question, but: When loading one of
the iso-fonts, I lose the graphic characters used by dialog, make
menuconfig/kernel, mc and others, an output from
dialog --yesno "hello" 5 30
³ hello ³
³ < Yes > < No > ³
as an example. when using the original charset, this comes out right, when
using the iso font the lines are replaced by big A-umlauts and U-Circles.
Probably 7-Bit-restrictions on mailservers prevent the image above to look
right anyway, but you see what I mean.
On my friends old slakware-linuxbox he manages to produce such dialogs
with umlauts in the question...! It worked right out-of-the box. How is it
done? What could be the problem?
I don't suffer for that, I'm just interested.
