View Full Version : How do you use international punctuation on Resinality?
10-06-2007, 06:36 PM
Some of my dolls have international punctuation in their names (umlauts, tildes, etc) and when I try to type them here the letters come up in little boxes instead of letters. Is there a way to fix this?
Thank you for the help :)

If you're using Windows, go into Accessories, System Tools, and Character Map. Pick the font you're using, scroll through and find the character you want. When it's highlighted, hit Select, then Copy. The letter with its little marking above goes into your computer's clipboard, and then you just have to hit Ctrl-V to call it up. If you do selections for the whole name, you can plug it in with one Ctrl-V (I just tried copying one character, an arrow, pasted it a couple of times into Notepad. Then did a fraction sign. Both characters appeared in the bottom box, and when I pasted each time, both characters pasted.)
I'm not sure how to keep the characters handy (not that familiar with Clipboard), but I suppose if you paste it once into Notepad and save it as a file, you can just Alt-I-F the file into something. OR make a cheatsheet list of names in Notepad, save it, and just copy and paste from that whenever you have need of it.

I use this (http://tlt.its.psu.edu/suggestions/international/accents/codealt.html) site to find the numeric code.
Hope that helps.:)

The Alt-key-plus-number code, though, doesn't give you the choice of fonts that the character map does. Good in a pinch, though, and especially for unique characters like copyright symbols, etc.

F・nor. Hobbywhelmed, I did what you suggested and it still does not work...I will play with this and see if I can make it work. Thank you both Hobbywhelmed and Ridgeway for your input :)

Sorry for bumping and old thread but I think this might have to do with server settings. I already have a lot of crazy letters on my keyboard (being Swedish) :lol and they turn in to squares too. And since HTML is off using the HTML-code for these letters doesn't work either.
I remember helping a Swedish friend of mine trying to sort out a problem like this on her own home page and in her case the problem was settings on the server where the page was hosted (HTML of course worked for her so she could solve it that way). In the old days you always had to code those letters on a webpage for them to show up on foreign computers and servers (foreign to me that is = outside Sweden) but now a days most servers are able to show them. In this case it might also depend on vBulletin too.
