Hi George,

Unfortunately, the default GLI font (Verdana) does not support all of Unicode, so any characters outside its range (eg. Georgian characters) will be displayed like '?'.

You can change the font used by the GLI by editing its config.xml files (you will need to change the base file in gsdlgliclassesxml, and user-specific files in C:Documents and Settings<Username>Application DataGreenstoneGLI). Find the line that says:

    <Argument name="general.font">Verdana, BOLD, 12</Argument>

and change the font name to whatever you want.

If you are on a recent Windows computer, a good font to use is "Arial Unicode MS". This contains all of Unicode version 2.0, so should work with any language. In this case, you would change it the font configuration to:

    <Argument name="general.font">Arial Unicode MS, PLAIN, 12</Argument>

(This font has no "bold" information).

Hope this helps,

Dear Sir, <?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />

Yesterday I sent you Georgian translations of macro files. I hope you receive them. For creation our collection "Anthology of Georgian classical literature" we've chosen Project Guttenberg's Structure (Titles A-Z, Authors A-Z). 

But we have following problem: 

I want to add documents to the greenstone collections which will have Georgian names.

When adding document using GLI as well as Organizer I have following problem:

Filling metadata fields (Title, Keyword, etc.) I get something like: "??????" 

So, we can't fill metadata fields in Georgian, please help us, how to solve this problem

Sincerly ,

George Varamishvili
