I had the following problem: I couldn't see some special characters ingame, e.g. the ♠ - there were just blank spaces. The solution for me was to activate the font "Arial Unicode MS Standard". Open "C:\Windows\Fonts", right-click "Arial Unicode MS Standard and click on "Show" (not sure whether Show is right, in german it's called Einblenden..). Then restart. If you don't have the font, google for "arialuni.zip" or use this download link

I hope that this helps people with the same problem :D

Here you have a little list: Link

If you want to write e.g. ♥, search for the symbol in the list and then enter ALT + the code on your numpad, for the ♥ it's ALT+3, for ♪ it's ALT+13!

This problem came up by the time when non-steam version (standalone) forced players to set their names via rev.ini.... you can use all these characters in steam version as i know.

Misunderstanding, i am talking about the characters that hou can seen in windows but not in game, you are talking about the symbols that you can't even see in windows.

actally you can add special characters to rev.ini as UTF , but UTF isn't supported in game. So by saving rev.in to UTF-8 format, thd game can't read rev.ini it anymore.

Well, I meant that I can't see the characters ingame with a fresh installation, but I can see them e.g. in Steam, and that's what I really don't understand, the programmers of css or source engine or whatever are so useless -.-
