Whatever you did seems to affect my English and Spanish VPC test systems
too -- and both use CP850. The 2.92 settings dialog displayed Russian,
Spanish and Czech characters just fine with the default system font
settings. 2.93 uses an ugly serif font for no reason apparently. See
The global page isn't codepage 850. It is codepage 1207
and the only difference between 2.92 and 2.93 for that page is that the
Times New Roman MT 30 font is 9 point instead of 10.
While I don't like the
font it is the only font that ships with OS/2 that has all the required glyphs.
Also, I don't know whether your font code tweaking should fix the last
problem with the PM popup text -- it still looks bad here.
This is unchanged from 2.92.
I looked at it and am seeing some very weird
and inconsistent behavior. At times I get 2 different fonts for the top and
bottom hint lines which shouldn't be possible. I will see if I can figure
out what is happening. Thanks
