With the font "helvR10", the character "idieresis" (an i with two dots instead of one: ï) is displayed too narrow, such that actually the right dot is cut off. See attached screenshot "snapshot1.png" (from a simulated H120).

The fix is easy, the BDF file for this font just needs to set the correct DWIDTH for this character. This is done by the attached patch "helvR10.bdf.patch". With the font patched in this way, the character in question is displayed correctly, see attached screenshot "snapshot2.png".
This task depends upon
