Hi all.

I'm French and there's a slight issue that's bothering me:

With Neon forcing upper case on home menu items, accent are a mess. I am not sure if it's a problem with the font or something else, but accented letters stay in lower case which ruin the feel of the menu...

For example, the menu goes: FILMS - SéRIES TV - VIDéOS - PARAMèTRES... This is really annoying, and this is the only thing keeping me from adopting the theme for good.

Could you add an option to not force upper case on home menu?

I think this would be the easiest way to work around this. Or you could allow the renaming of the default menu items, so I would clear them of accents manually? It is common use not to accent upper case anyway...

Thanks for you time an interest Wink

Rather than a Neon issue this is an XBMC font handling issue, which should have been fixed in Helix (XBMC v14)

Check http://forum.xbmc.org/showthread.php?tid...pid1744580

I will test to see if this correctly works in Neon with Helix.

The accented letters issue was backported to XBMC 13.2 (beta1) which we are currently testing.
Check the blog article at http://xbmc.org/xbmc-13-2-gotham-beta-1/

This means you can now test this yourself. Follow the instructions and update your XBMC version to 13.2-beta1. If all goes correctly the accented letters should be shown correctly.
Please verify this in Neon as well as in Confluence.

Your feedback is much appreciated.
