I seem to have a VERY wierd problem.... I use the MS Word Reader
Add-in, which allows me to create .lit files for my iPaq MS Reader
from Microsoft Word. However, I noticed that in the docs that contain
accented characters like the "é" and others, MS Reader for both the
iPaq and on the desktop, show an elongated rectangle (when the font
doesn't support a certain character for that character code, it
usually contains that empty elongated character), instead of the
character that it should be, which would lead me to believe that the
font I'm using for the conversion doesn't have accented characters. It
appears normally in Word.
Furthermore, I utilize the Frutiger Linotype (cleartype) font, and in
Word, it has no problems displaying the accented characters (which
means that the character code does have a character in the charmap.
When I loaded Frutiger Linotype into charmap, it does show the
accented characters where they should be), but, once I make it into a
.lit formatted file, the Reader just doesn't display ANY accented
Anyone know if I'm doing something wrong? Or if maybe there's a better
application for creating .lit files?
I know I know... .lit isn't the PREFERRED format for ebooks, but it's
convenient and easy for me due to the PPC's MS Reader integration....
