Accented Characters in PediTree and Pedigree

If you use extended characters in your database, that is accented characters or the British pound-sign £, then you will find that they are displayed differently in PediTree and Pedigree for DOS. If your database was created and maintained in Pedigree for DOS, then such characters will not be shown properly in PediTree.

This article (90kB PDF) explains the reasons for this and describes what you can do about it. It will be published in the September 2011 PUG Newsletter, if you prefer a printed copy.
