This problem does not occur with IE or the Windows Version of Mozilla 1.2b. This system is using SDD 7.11 at a resolution of 1600x1200 at 64K colors. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Display Page at http://http://www.hollywood.com/showtimes/theatre_detail.asp?searchtheatre=3226&searchzip=77094&searchradius=15 2. View page 3. Actual Results: Page displayed with leader dots incorrectly. Expected Results: Shown dots instead of the • character.
Just tested under Netscape 4.61 on OS/2 and page is displayed correctly.
Where exactly are these leader dots? I see that character in two places on the page -- the left-hand links and between the show times in the middle. In both places the page explicitly asks for that character's unicode codepoint in the HTML....
The leader dots are part of the left hand lists and between the showtimes. Both display as the wrong character.
Could you post a screenshot of what they display like for you? For me they look exactly like the list bullet in a <ul>...
thanks! Sounds like an OS/2-only font issue....

Do you have Times New Roman MT 30 installed on your system? What do you have set for your Unicode font?
When I look in the Font Pallette I only see the Times New Roman font. Is there any other way to check the fonts? And how do I check the unicode font?
Open the font palette and double click on a font to display the font dialog. Check in this font list for the Times New Roman MT 30 font.

Nope, I have a Times New Roman, but no Times New Roman MT 30 listed.
Because these characters are Unicode, you need a Unicode font to display them. Go to preferences, select Font and select Unicode. Change these fonts to be Arial. Arial has enough Unicode support to display these bullets correctly. The core issue here is that on OS/2 we can't query a font as to whether or not it has a glyph, so we have to assume that the font specified for the Unicode font supports these glyphs. Most people have Times New Roman MT 30 (which comes with Java), which is why we default to that.
