We have an online store for Czech, and our invoices are printing things like á for the í character, and for other characters as well.

My question is, what font supports these types of characters?

Thank you!

Hi Jeff. Most standard fonts should support this. The real question is: How are you printing the invoices? Do you mean, "printing" as in showing them on the screen? If the characters is wrong, that is probably an issue with the HTML code (encoding) itself. Or, if you're generating PDFs, a problem with your PDF generator. – slhck Feb 22 '13 at 16:32

It's an issue with the text encoding, and NOT the fonts themselves. The Czech alphabet set would be covered under ASCII (Latin-2 - Central European languages).

There's also a site that allows you to see the effect a different encoding can have.

Common fonts support those characters: Arial, Geneva, Verdana, Times New Roman, Liberation family and more.

I guess it's not a font's fault, but rather a software bug. The software you're using for your shop doesn't encode those characters properly. Solution would be to locate the problem and patch it or to migrate to a better software.
