I'm Robert and I'm developing in Smalltalk for 10 years by now. I'm looking for and alternative smalltalk and I would like to port some existing applications from VisualAge.

I started to read some Squeak documentation, and it seems to be great (both the documentation and Squeak itself!).

However, I have a very basic question I can't figure out, maybe because the answer is trivial.

I'm Hungarian and our software code and applications conatin national character strings. This is quite normal :)

On Linux I have this setting: LANG=hu_HU.UTF-8

Squek starts with no problem, and keyboard is working well, all characters are on its right place, so the Hungarian keyboard and settings are working well, but there are two Hungarian specials for which nothing appears.

These are o with double acute and u with double acute (o" u" O" U" - just imagine the double acute above the o-s and u-s) both regular and capital. Simply nothing is displayed. It usually mens that there is no glyph for those in the character set applied - but I'm not sure.
On windows these ar in Central European sets (Win1250 or ISO-8859-2), and naturally, all unicode sets contain these...

Before I start any migration tests I must be know the answers about this very little but very essential problem.

thanks for any help
