I've a similar problem, so I thought I'd post here rather than start a new thread. Do you have any suggestion for input? I've been trying to figure out how to input IPA into mirc, since I sometimes have linguistic discussions. I use a program called Keyman, which uses a unicode-based keyboard input. I've got the correct fonts, and I could type things in IPA dʒəstʰ fαin (just fine) here for instance
(Although evidently they don't show up :P) I noticed I could read the fonts when someone else tried to type them, but it came up as ɣ, when i tried to copy/paste. What is mirc doing? And is there anything I can do to fix that?
I'm using Doulos SIL font, which is perfectly utf8 compatible, and winxp with mirc 6.2. I've tried a variety of fonts with the same results.
