Subject: Trouble with loadable fonts

> Hello,
> I tested around with loadable fonts, because I want to see the "german

> First question: Why aren't the german characters (umlauts )
> displayed in the non-loadable-fonts version? They are available in
> both ANSI and Ascii table. Is the standard font only Ascii 7 bit?
> Then I compiled a version with loadable fonts and the 5x7.bdf (which

> I downloaded 5x7 and 5x8 (both ISO8859-1) fonts from somewhere, but

> Has anybody a font for me that's equivalent to the font of the
> fixed-font-version (only with 'german umlauts')?
> Bye, Uwe.
