Dave,

Somebody maybe already mentioned this, but if that was a
true example you gave, uh, you should ask for another
translation. "Ha estado enfermo" does not carry an accent.
"¿Ha visto ángeles?" does.

But at least you're not using a computerized automatic
translation program! They give me laugh riots! (And a few
B-movie subtitles!)

And make sure you get the tilde over the "ñ", because when
you ask them how old they are, in Spanish if you don't have
that tilde then you're asking them how many rear orifices
they have!

Subject: Spanish characters in AFP


We have a form that our Health deparmtent translator has put
into Spanish.
We have entered the Spanish tranlsation into AFP for an
overlay used by the RPG IV program.

There is no problem printing most of the form.
However, we cannot find some accented characters in a font
that AFP will print.  (Ex:  Há  estado enfermo)
We tried pasting the characters from Word into AFP.  They
show up on the screen but still don't print on our Lexmark
printer.

Does anyone have any ideas of a font in AFP that would print
Spanish language specific characters?

TIA,

Dave Boettcher
