firstly, i am not sure if this issue is mentioned already somewhere in the forum, but it came to my attention as i hear a lot of spanish and french music, that the songtitles are not displayed correctly when including characters like e.g. é,è,í, etc.
is there a fix available?

troll the forums, some guy reported writing a hack
to allow for that
--
if you investigate how the skinning works,
you'll see the alphabet only consists of (minus the surrounding ~~~~~)

~~~~~~~~ !"#$%&'()*+,-./0123456789:;<=>?@ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ
[\]^_`abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz~~~~~~~~

what coolplayer appears to do is to look at the ascii number for a character, then look at the skin's ini file and times the character number by the width of a character in the alphabet skin.
accented characters tend to appear as black boxes, so this proves my theory. If anyone reshacks the file and changes the alphabet bitmap so that it has all the accents added on it should work fine... (the bit inbetween the ####'s)
