How do I create special symbols and accents in labels?

The following solution only works with the raster drivers that load Truetype or Type1 fonts! (That means, -Tgif, -Tpng, -Tjpeg, and possibly -Tbmp or -Txbm if enabled). Use UTF8 coding, e.g. ¥ for the Yen currency symbol ¥. Example:

  • graph G {
    • yen [label="¥"]


You can look up other examples in this handy character set reference.
