In KDE there is a way to add another keyboard layout. When active, there is a flag in my System Tray that I can click on and it cycles through the flags of various languages that I have set up. Ok, well only Spanish and English so far
When I have it set to Spanish I can type the accents and other things just fine. But if I save file names or metadata information (for music) with these characters it produces errors in that name/data. Same if I send an email in GMail using Firefox; it looks fine on my screen, but when I hit send I get all kinds of odd characters (and it drives the recipient nuts)(his emails appear flawless on my screen)
"¿quÃ© tal estÃ¡s?"
"que' tal esta's?" (with accents on the letters, not apostrophies)
and "Â¿dos aÃ±os?" should read
"dos an~os" (with a tilde on the 'n')
Where is this error? Is it a Unix/DOS mismatch somewhere (even though its all Linux on my machine, and through GMail too i believe). Is there a Unicode checkmark box thing in KDE that I am missing? It seems to me there is a standard not being supported somewhere.
Thanks for any information or pointers
