I have (Mandrake) Linux 10.1 with scribus-1.2 and scribus-1.2CVS. I
have succesfully used both with entering Chinese characters in GB2312
and UTF-8 encodings. If you can give me exact instructions to reproduce
the probmem I can help debug the problem. I am able to reproduce a
similar "bug" where greek letters are rendered as boxes, but if I
highlight the words in the story editor, choose a different font, and
then publish down to the text area it renders correctly. It sounds like
you are using a font that doesn't have glyphs for accented characters.
