Tags and Alt Codes - Need some help

Hi guys, so I have been experiencing an issue with oUF tags for quite a while now where if someone has alt codes in their name, then it parses their name up until the alt code.

Ex: Taurčn becomes Taur

Here is the simple tag that I am using, I have a feeling it's probably something that I am doing wrong. Although I think it's messing up somewhere inside of oUF, can anyone provide some insight into this? Thanks!

Code:
oUF.Tags.Methods["oUF_Test:Name"] = function(Unit)
    return GetUnitName(Unit, false)
end

Are you sure that's the tag you are using? The tag system in oUF pretty much just concatenates strings.

Snail,
I did come across this myself, but not in oUF. I suspect that the problem may be that the font that you are using doesn't support the accent characters.

I'd suggest that you try a different font, such as arial which is known to support the characters. That would at least rule that out as a problem.


Ekat.
