Ok, I'm thoroughly confused. I've built an application for creating a
Greek dictionary. I'd like to use Bitstream Vera as the base font for
the application. However, the rev documentation says:
> If you set the unicodeText of a field to a unicodeString that contains multiple languages, Revolution automatically sets the textFont of double-byte characters to the appropriate Unicode font.
Can I force Rev to choose a particular font for Unicode text? I can set
the textFont but Rev still forces the Unicode text into Geneva. I can
set the htmlText and use the appropriate tags but Rev still does strange
things. For example, if I include a space between the entities, Rev
renders the characters following the space as some sort of Asian font,
but if I remove the space, the fonts render correctly.
I was under the impression that the advantage of Unicode was that, no
matter what font you used, any given unicode entity was exactly the
same. Is this a bug? Is something happenting I'm not aware of?
