The Korean characters in pulldown menu of Insert Characters dialog are displayed as "?". Steps of reproduce 1. Open Composer 2. Select menu Insert|Characters Under Korean Hangul section , the Korean characters in the pulldown menu are displayed as "?". After you select one of the Korean character, the character is displayed correctly under Insert section. Tested 2000042109 Win32, 2000042110 Mac and 2000042109 Linux build.

I have no idea how to fix this. Help, Frank! Do we have to set a charset for the dialog?
no. this is a rendering issue. I can see it nicely on my window since I have install the office2000 font. blee try it and see ? in his English window but without problem on his Korean window (both have Korean font installed). I guess the problem is the code use the Unicode Jamo block and some of the korean font do not have it. I think this is a rendering issue.

How can this bug be fixed? If there are no fonts with those glyphs on the system, then we can't draw those glyphs, right?
Forgot to add this comment: This works fine in Win NT KO, but not in non-KO Windows with a KO font (Gulim) as well as Mac and Linux.
Given that last bit of info, is showing foreign font sets useful? Is there a way to detect what language version is being used and include those tabpanels only if appropriate version is installed?
How about changing those characters to other characters for which we do have glyphs in standard Korean fonts? I.e. U+11XX -> U+31XX.

How come that I only see these entries in the "Insert Character": Accent upper/lowercase, other upper/lowercase, common symbols? (2000-08-17-13)
Mark it as futre

Charles or Beth, I do not see Korean characters in pulldown anymore. Is this correct? If so, this bug is no longer valid.

As mentioned in comment #8, I don't see any Korean letters in Insert-Characters. When did this change happen? If that's the correct behavior (listing only accented, common symbols, etc), this bug is invalid.
I can back up comment 11 and comment 15. It may be too late to make any resolution, but I will close this bug because the Korean character stuffs were deliberately removed from "Insert Character" dialog (both frontend and backend) circa August 2000.
