android fonts

I can't view any non-english characters. I am told that android 2.2 resolved this issue. I won't be able to get Froyo soonish. So I have to live with this issue for the time being.

My workaround has been to use Opera Mini with fonts being rendered on the server. I can read many sites, though not all.

But this still leaves the other applications showing empty squares instead of legible characters in their languages. I am multi-lingual, and I do need multiple languages.

The other option that I am considering is to root the device, and replace the default font with a merged unicode font supporting all languages.

I haven't really considering rooting my phone yet. This issue might get me looking at this more seriously.
