Well it's mostly one's that belongs other alphabets, like cyrillic for example. And it sometimes appears at the end of lines.

Re: Chromium can't show certain characters

Probably a stupid question, but do you have the correct fonts installed? I do know that what works in Firefox might not work in Chromium without extra fonts installed. Have you tried other browsers (for troubleshooting purposes)?

Re: Chromium can't show certain characters

I haven't installed any particular fonts, what fonts do I need? I installed Midori, and it worked fine in this regard.

Re: Chromium can't show certain characters

You can find a list of fonts and their respective languages here : https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Fo … t_packages.
For my part, I symply installed all of the ttf-* packages from extra and community (I could probably make some clean up and chosse what to keep, but a font isn't that big, and I have choice and absolutely no missing ones).
You should also install the windows7 MS fonts from AUR. It is always helpfull for work.

Re: Chromium can't show certain characters

Well I installed fonts non modern english alphabets and the dejavu fonts, so far it seems to help, only really uncommon alphabets which I only see at the frontpage of wikipedia is still like this but oh well...
