Character encoding in Help browser

Ever since the Polish manual appeared in the console, some letters (specific to the Polish laguage) do not appear in the browser (I only see squares instead). In Hog3PC it's OK; and when I open the HTML version of the manual on my computer it's also OK in any browser I can think of, so the problem seems to be something missing in the console's browser.

    Marcin,

    You are correct that some characters for foreign languages do not exist in the current linux kernel on the Wholehog 3 console. This is why you do not see them in Polish or Japanese.

    This is logged as bug #4662 and I have added your comments to the entry.

    thanks,

    Thank you for answering.. but honestly: what does the kernel have to do with how the text is displayed in the browser??

    The proper fonts must be included for the characters to be displayed....

    Yes, this is true. But fonts don't sit in the kernel..

    No, but they are part of the kernel preparation and disk image process and have to be located on the disk.
