Heyho,
I have some problems with tabbed (Image). I'm using my own font with encoding iso10646-1.
Font is located in ~/.fonts with mkfondir. It's working fine in terminals etc. (st terminal with ncmpcpp in the image is the same font).

tabbed.h
Code:
static const char font[] = "-*-gomme-*-*-*--*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*";


But somehow tabbed only displays Null characters (but the right font). Does tabbed support iso10646 or only iso8859?

We've seen similar in the past with Fluxbox which turned out an upstream bug with utf-8. http://i.imgur.com/NYD3lmg.png
Are you sure x11-misc/tabbed is aware of unicode at all? Did you try with other fonts?

Yes, seems like it can't display iso10646/unicode. I've tried it with terminus-u... the same result.
I've made a second version of my font with iso8859. Special Chars are blank but the rest is working.

Yes, seems like it doesn't support unicode/iso10646. I've tried terminus-uincode with the same result.
I'm now using a iso8859 version of my font.
