Chrome rendering of UTF-8

Posted on

Problem :

When looking for Shruggie, I see an encoding error / rectangle box, instead of the wanted character. Strange enough: when I right-click and use the search-for option, the character is rendered correctly.

How can I fix the encoding, such, that I see the correct rendered shruggie?

Chrome Version: Version 58.0.3029.110 (64-bit)

OS: openSuse Tumbleweed (if that is of any help)


Shruggie in Google Search

Solution :

The Mystery is somehow solved. I had installed “Arial” which came with said Package. I copied over some fonts from old Windows installations and there was a font called Arial Unicode MS.

Switching to this unicode capable version solved the problem.
