Problem with extended characters. Squares instead of Romanian characters.

Hi,

My translation team is having issue with Romanian characters on Windows 7. S comma and T comma characters are not displayed and they can see only squares [] in xml and txt files, actually any file type.

Everything works fine few days ago, and there was no system updates, software installation or system reconfiguration. We are using the right encoding and language to display/write in Romanian language, the strange thing is that it works on other workstations.

Appreciate your help,

Lukasz

Make sure the Romanian fonts, or the fonts that you use/require for the S comma and T comma characters to display are installed and correct?
Usually when text comes up with squares, either the font is not correct, corrupted, are mismatched or does not exist.
