These are software bugs--one which I have lamented for years--though I
was never able to fix them in OSG proper. Instead I've written an
external library called osgPango to give better font support in OSG (at
the cost of having to depend on the Pango library). Please check out:


...for more info. You can contact me here, on AIM as cubicool, or on
googletalk as cubicool at gmail.com if you want to ask any questions. It
will build easy on Linux, harder on Windows (though, as you can see from
the screenshot, it's not impossible. :))
