Description

I need support for the Peso sign (Unicode 20B1) for the Bayanihan Linux project
in the Philippines (http://bayanihan.asti.dost.gov.ph/).

Could this be added to the 1.0.x branch? The Bayanihan browser is being based on
Mozilla 1.0.1 but will be upgraded to 1.0.2 if it is released.

How does it not work?

Do you actually have a font that supports it?  I don't (Win2k) - even the 
usually reliable Lucida Sans Unicode font doesn't include the 0x20B1 code point.
In any case, this is the wrong component.

Is this a request to do some sort of fallback transliteration for that codepoint
if the user does not have a font that supports it?  Or what?

I think it's a font issue. (I don't have font to support this.  XP-En didn't work)
If we have the glyph, we should be able to display.

WFM on Mac OS X. A font (Code 2000) with support for all of those currency
symbols can be found on the same site as the example URL.

Dunno about Linux, but usually Windows needs to be manually configured (!) to
support certain character setsand characters. If i mix in some Chinese in mainly
Western pages (using Unicode), Windows is so dumb it just allows question marks.
Thank goodness I have a Mac.

For windows/mac, our font module should be able to pick up the font if you have
them available on your system. On linux, the problem is a little different. Do
you have any idea which font encoding includes this code point£¬ and is there
such a font available on your system? Is transliteration acceptable in lieu of
font glyph?

What about morthing this bug to "RFE: Add support for various currency signs"
and check the unicode range for other currency signs beyond peso as well (just
to kill all issues with one bug :)
