The strange thing is that even though they characters don't display correctly in Amaya, if you save the file and open it with IE or Opera there they are exactly as they should be, so there's clearly no problem with the inputting.

There's a Fonts.Win file in the Amaya 5.2x\config folder that you can open and edit the file with Notepad. I tried this on a previous version of Amaya for the international version of XP, but it didn't solve the problem. I haven't yet tried with v 9.52, though
