How hard can æ, ø and å be?
11th February 2018

We write 2018, and it is 30 years since Unicode was introduced. Most of us in Norway have come to expect the use of our alphabet to just work with any computer system. But it is apparently beyond reach of the computers printing recites at a restaurant. Recently I visited a Peppes pizza resturant, and noticed a few details on the recite. Notice how 'ø' and 'å' are replaced with strange symbols in 'Servitør', 'Å BETALE', 'Beløp pr. gjest', 'Takk for besøket.' and 'Vi gleder oss til å se deg igjen'.

I would say that this state is passed sad and over in embarrassing.

I removed personal and private information to be nice.
