I would like to include special signs in my new 1.19 Mediawiki
installation, but they are showing not right. I have 200 *.doc files which
need to be indexed all into one MW Installation.
How are these signs written in the doc files? Are they Unicode
characters or are they Latin letters disguised by some "dingbats"
font? What happens if you select such a character and change the font
to Times New Roman? If it turns to a simple Latin letter, then you
have two choices:
1. Convert the characters to the corresponding Unicode characters.
2. Upload them as-is, and put a <span style="font-family: 'DINGBATS
FONT NAME'>CHARACTER</span> on each character.
If they already are Unicode characters, the problem may be in the way
you import the files. What do you use to import them into the wiki?
