original post on povray.beta-test:
POV-Ray 3.7.0.RC3 on Slackware 13.0 x86_64. I pointed povray to use the calibri.ttf font over on my Windows 7 partition. The result is garbled - strange letters with accents appear instead of the expected text. (KDE's kfontview opens calibri.ttf OK, with nothing strange). Pointing povray to use other fonts of Win7, e.g. comic.ttf and arial.ttf, was OK. I solved the problem by pushing calibri.ttf through fontforge and resaving it as mycalibri.ttf. Cheers, Peter
Confirmed with development version on Windows XP x64.
