A weird problem with Romanian characters.


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone.

Recently I have reinstalled from scratch my Windows XP SP 2 and did a registry cleanup after finished installing and configuring software.

A weird problem occurred then. I am from Moldova and working as Internet Administrator I design WebPages and graphics using Romanian language. Frankly some of my essential applications like FrontPage and PhotoImpact are simply refusing to include such Romanian characters as ţ ş â î ă etc. Its pretty weird because other applications like Microsoft Office 2000 or even Notepad are easily accepting these symbols. Those applications I mentioned are simply replacing Romanian characters with western like t s a I a etc.

Any ideas what I could I mess in the registry or what could be done to fix that?

Thanks a lot in advance.

1. i suppose you have in <regional and language settings>

at <Regional Options> Romanian and Romania for location.

and Romanian at <advanced/language for non unicode programs>

2. read that [6 fonts updated by M$ after Romania and Bulgaria was integrated in UE]

maybe will help you.

3. i use to put this in my uA XP CD . is just a substitution .

; creeaza prin substituire fonturile Arial Black/Narrow CE

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]

"Arial Black CE,0"="Arial Black,238"

"Arial Black CE,238"="Arial Black,238"

"Arial Narrow CE,0"="Arial Narrow,238"

"Arial Narrow CE,238"="Arial Narrow,238"

Thanks for reply friend.

I think i found the problem that was messing my registry.

Its this:


[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontMapper]

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\FontSubstitutes]
"Comic Sans MS,0"="Comic Sans MS,204"
"Courier,0"="Courier New,204"
"Courier,204"="Courier New,204"
"MS Sans Serif,0"="MS Sans Serif,204"
"Times New Roman,0"="Times New Roman,204"

It a registry file made by an Russian as*****.
