It's hard to quantify them all together, so I'll start with this one. http://www.mentovai.com/tmp/alpha-hu.html displays the Hungarian alphabet, as encoded with ISO 8859-2 (Latin-2/Eastern European) and HTML � Unicode character references. All characters except for the O and U with two acute diacritics are displayed in the default Western font. The two characters in question are displayed in both uppercase and lowercase in Times, or some variant thereupon. To see this, it may be useful to adjust Chimera's preferences slightly. I have removed all font preferences from prefs.js (the default state) and am testing with: user_pref("font.name.sans-serif.x-central-euro","Lucida Grande"); user_pref("font.name.sans-serif.x-cyrillic","Helvetica CY"); user_pref("font.name.sans-serif.x-western","Monaco"); user_pref("font.name.serif.x-central-euro","Lucida Grande"); user_pref("font.name.serif.x-cyrillic","Helvetica CY"); user_pref("font.name.serif.x-western","Monaco"); Note that what I refer to as "eastern European" (8859-2, Latin-2) is what most applications seem to refer to as "central European." The document in question specifies iso-8859-2 as its character set, and the expected iso-8859-2 characters are displayed properly, but not in the expected typefaces. Compare http://www.mentovai.com/tmp/alpha-ru.html (Russian, in Cyrillic with iso-8859-5) and http://www.mentovai.com/tmp/alpha-en.html (English, western European, iso-8859-1). Is somebody actively working on this stuff? Is there a better place to discuss how this should work than Bugzilla? Mark Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce:

Sorry - new test page at http://www.mentovai.com/tmp/alpha-hu.html. The behavior seems a bit different than I initially described, but still buggy. It looks like the Western font (try Lucida Grande) is used for most characters, but not for the characters with double-acutes. Those seem to want to show up in Times. On the second glance, this problem looks like it's being imported from Mozilla. Mark
Looks fine if I use Times as my default font.

Sure, you won't notice a problem if everything is set to Times. Try setting everything to Times, except for the Western proportional font. Set that to Lucida Grande. Hit up the test page, and the O and U with two acute diacritics will be displayed in Times in the first (proportional) block anyway. In fact, they seem to be displayed in Times independently of any possibly relevant setting in the Appearance/Fonts preferences. So, there are two problems: - Western fonts are being used for most text in Central European pages. - The O and U characters with double-acutes are being displayed in Times regardless of any preference setting. Note that Lucida Grande was specifically selected in this example because it contains so may glyphs, including the O and U with double-acutes. It should be used to display those characters when the Central European encoding is in effect and it is selected as the font. Of course, this is all a little bit messed up anyway since the first bug makes where to select it unclear. Mark
Reporter could you test with a nigthly and recent build, because it seems fine with with 2003090102 on 10.2.6.
Still an issue?
