Description

16 years ago
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; en-US; rv:1.0rc1) Gecko/20020418
BuildID:    2002041811

The escape sequence & #149; (I added a space) is supposed to be a bullet
character. It actually displays as a Greek delta. This only occurs on Mozilla.
  I tried different character codings (English (US-ASCII); Western
(Windows-2152)) for the page: no change. The default character set is Western
(iso-8859-1).


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open the Washington Post site. (CNN is the same.)



Actual Results:  Observe the Greek delta characters where a bullet is expected.

Expected Results:  Bullets, not deltas.

What do you have set as your Unicode font?

And if it is Times New Roman MT 30, do you have that font installed?

• is represented as a Unicode bullet, so in order for it to display 
correctly on OS/2, you must have a Unicode font specified that exists on your 
system. We set the default Unicode font in preferences to Times New Roman MT 30 
which you might not have.

You can set just about any truetype font (Courier New, Arial, etc.) to be the 
Unicode font and you will see bullets.
