We are trying to localise a S40 java app that displays text within SVG images. However, Arabic characters (for example) do not display properly in the emulator/phone default SVG font - presumably because this is not unicode. Our attempts to specify an alternative 'font-family' for the SVG text have failed and the display always remains the same.
Note that our localised text (UTF-8 encoded) appears correctly outside of the SVG image (prompts, help screens, forms etc) and that this problem still occurs when Arabic is chosen as the phone language.
If possible we want to avoid developing our own unicode font and having to include this in every app. Please, does anyone know how we can specify a unicode font (even the operating system font) for use in SVG images?
