Summary0002416: ps driver, en-dash, em-dash
DescriptionHello,

the postscript (ps, ps2) output driver of Dot does not support unicode characters. Please add support at least for en/em-dash which are in standard postscript fonts.

I would also appreciate spaces http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thin_space. [^]
In Unicode, thin space is encoded at U+2009   thin space (HTML:    ).
Unicode's U+202F   narrow no-break space (HTML:  )
is a non-breaking space with a width similar to that of the thin space.

Thank you
HG

As noted in bug 2415, given our resources, we have to rely on other libraries to handle postscript. And as much as I love postscript, it simply isn't used that much any more. If you want to use unicode in postscript, please use one of the other postscript renderers: -Tps:cairo, -Tps:quartz or -Tps:lasi.
