UI is not my league. Time will tell if any other dev is interested in adding support for software snap display. At least now, there it could be possible.

If anything I'd have the native language names in an extended field, and a romanized name as the main one.


I suggested Barry to use only Romanized descriptions as well, when he first added fm7 lists, but he said it was easier for him to create the list in that way.

given that internal UI displays those characters just fine (if you have them in the fontset you're using), until now there were no visible bad effects coming from his choice.

Now that we have indeed a 'bug' due to using Japanese chars, we can maybe re-discuss the thing: feel free to point out the problem to Barry (I'm working on other things, atm)
