Hello,
I am running R 2.01 on SuSE 9.2 and I use GNU-Emacs and ESS. When using umlauts like for e.g. plot titles , I enter them directly in the code, like

plot(seq(from=-4,to=4,length=100),dnorm(seq(from=-4,to=4,length=100)),main="Gau-Verteilung")

I get a dotted box just after the "Gau" and before the "" in the title.

Using the postscript device

postscript()
plot(seq(from=-4,to=4,length=100),dnorm(seq(from=-4,to=4,length=100)),main="Gau-Verteilung") dev.off()

I get two warning messages:

Warning messages:
1: font width unknown for character 142
2: font width unknown for character 142
and a space after the "Gau" and before the "".

I'd like to get rid of the extra space and the box before umlauts. Does anyone know how to solve the problem?

Thanks,
~ Henning
