Song Ticker Font Question

I was listening to Tool - Ænima (The album) and in the song ticker the font appears to be as solid text, rather then a dot font. That's a bit vague.

Ok for any song on the Ænima album the text scrolling along the song ticker liiks like this

Tool - Ænima - Stinkfist

Where as if it was another song say
Led Zeppelin - Remasters (Disc 1) - Dazed And Confused the text scrolling in the song ticker would look like this. (Zoomed in)
code:
. ..... . .
. . . .
. ..... . . ...
. . . .
.... ..... . .



Catch my drift?

Now the same solid text effect occours on the song 4°.
Does this happen due to the fact that there is charecters such as ° and Æ in the songs ID tag that donot register on a normal keyboard?
If so why?

Go to Prefrences --> Modern Skins --> Font Rendering.
Check "Allow use of bitmap fonts that haven't been mapped"

If that doesn't work....
Check "User the alternate fonts if the skin defines them"

Or you you want to use another font select "Use skin font mapper" configure it and set a new font for player.songticker.font


And for a brief explanation. The LED "font" in the Modern Skin isn't really a font, it is a graphic. Therefore it is quite limited to the standard keyboard English characters. So, if you have a lot of special characters in your song names you are going to have to change the font used.
