        Description

        Using a Java app to display the Euro char in any Utf-8 locale sometimes does not work.
        The example I used was the swingtest app which gave different results. The command " java SwingTest -command (localised characters inc. Euro).
        All swing.JText applets cannot display ( see attached image)
        The strangest is the swing.JTextPane panel where some fonts can display tyhe Euro and others not. Eg. Block and Italics -good, normal and subscript -bad.
        This seems to suggest a font issue with UTF and the EURO.
        All relevant patches have been applied to the machine both for Solaris/Euro and JDK/Euro.

        THis is also happening in 2.8 and in other releases of JDK (1.3.0_04).
        Awt is fine with one exception ( again bizarre ). CanvasTest which displays the string on acoloured background using drawString. (see attached file).
        The problem is mostly with Swing applets suggesting a problem within JDK. However AWT uses the Os's own resources, so the result from Canvas complicates things.
