Hello!

I have to display characters from the ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) character set (e.g. german umlauts).

How do I achieve this?

If I (naively) try to display umlauts, the corresponding text element does not even appear! (within the simulator, at least - I have not yet tried the actual device)

Thanks in advance for any help!

International characters seem to work now in 1.1 -- see the "GettingStarted/HelloWorldLocalized" project for a multilingual example.

BTW, we assume all strings are assumed to be UTF-8 in Lua w.r.t. text rendering. The displayable characters will be limited to the available glyphs of the OS-provided fonts.
