I'm running Cairo 1.0.2 and GTK+ 2.8.9 on a system with LANG=en_US.UTF-8
In interface components like a GtkLabel, I can include UTF-8 encodings
that display correctly, as in this line of code:
cos_label = gtk_label_new ("cos <i>\316\270</i>:");
However, when I try to display the same encoding using cairo_show_text,
I see a rectangle instead of the expected theta character:
I am using the system font (Sans) in Cairo.
Am I missing something obvious?
