GRFs define strings in UTF-8, that allows using a lot of symbols of different languages, special chars and so on. Unfortunately, when OTTD finds a missing symbol in the selected font, it displays ⃞ symbol. It would be much better if OTTD would look for the symbol in the other fonts, because the GRF can't store font file with all the symbols inside the GRF.
This task depends upon

May be it would be also possible to include font files into bananas packages, so the OTTD knew where to search these missing symbols?
