why ever :(. This font causes sbl to have problems. The setfont command 
removes this font and the standard is used.

directory the file


exists where the default font can be set during the boot process. Please 
open this file and search for a entry called


Remove all params for this setting:

is rebooted now and no font should be set and all special German 
characters should be displaied fine.

Best wishes from Straubing :),
