[Mono-dev] Unknown chars in strings

Are you sure your application works by itself? e.g. does the application (without recompiling) works on Windows/.Net or Linux/x86/Mono?

If Mono prints ? on the console it is most likely an issue with encodings/codepages (Mono contains it's own set of locale, timezone and codepage data so you shouldn't need any other c libraries).

Did you check OutputEncoding? Did you try to set it to a different encoding?

Happy Hacking
