Do you speak japanese ? Puppy does! (On the way to unicode)
OK, I just tried what happens if you replace the standard fonts, which are for ISO-8859-1 with the Unicode fonts.
This is basically what I did: copied mkfontdir, mkfontscale and libfontenc.so.1 from Vector Linux , remove the standard puppy fonts and copied the Unicodefonts from Vector (/usr/X11/lib/fonts/misc) (the ones without -ISOXXXX in the name). OK, puppy has gained a little weight (they are about 5 times as big as the 8859-1's).
To rebuid the font database and update the font cache you need to run
xset fp rehash
And it works ! Japanese, Korean,Thai ... (arabic is not working, but this is a known issue)
It does seem to have no effect on other applications, as I can see.
The downside: the problem which i wanted to solve (the missing Euro currency symbol) is still there.
