Description

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows-1250

Polish characters are not displayed correctly in Haiku. The problem affects all text files; txt, rtf, srt subtitles, in future .doc, etc. The problem concerns to files created under Windows. So almost all the text files written in Polish and available on the internet. This is very annoying...

The issue was raised in the #6447 comments.

Haiku currently does not support CP-1250 encoding which is commonly used by Windows to encode Polish diacritical signs. I will add it in a moment.

Please reopen this ticket!

Files still open with the wrong encoding, but I can change them at StyleEdit. This works for TXT and SRT. But do not work for RTF! MediaPlayer still incorrectly displays subtitles.

Replying to Premislaus:

Those would be problems in the RTF translator and MediaPlayer respectively, which are independent issues/tickets from this one.
