I am using the window fonts to load my text: CreateFont(); That api is what i am using i believe. I need to write character to the screen which are in a different language, like spanish. I need accent marks and little sqigles over the n, things like that. How do i go about doing this? Does windows fonts already come with support for different language characters? Please any help on any way i could do this would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!

You will probably have to utilize the extended character set, what I''ve done in the past is go to the "character map" program that is in your Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools.

I just select the font that I''m using for my program, select the Windows Western character set and just copy and past the characters into my program. This will work to some degree more or less but is font and system dependent.

You could try playing around with the character set argument in the "CreateFont()" function.
