so most texture packs for 1.8 which use custom fonts do not display ß correctly. Instead it's similar to this symbol ♂, but a bit larger and with thicker lines. I'm really far from knowledgeable, but I did check the font files and ß is there, it just won't show. Can I fix this somehow?
Edit: Nevermind, I just found the error. I compared it to another png that I made from Arial and noticed that the top most lines are completely different.
I believe most font changed resource packs and texture packs in the past were based on another pack that had this error in it and didn't think it would be much of an issue in the future for other languages other than English.
So I believe other English speaking pack creators used that font as their base font without comparing it with the original font first and copied the error.
