It doesn't seem to be a font problem. The letters in question (æøå)
are visible. I read pages in my own native language on a daily
basis, and have no problem viewing these letters.

However, if I either enter one of them in the search box built-in
Opera, or enter text into input fields on webpages, square boxes
appear instead of the letter entered. Also if I enter these letter
in eg. a blog comment, other people will read the squares.
