oooh

you're right. I tried to use some special characters (pi: π and german umlauts) like this.

Label {
       text: "Hello π Bäcker World"              
       textStyle {
           base: SystemDefaults.TextStyles.BigText
           fontWeight: FontWeight.Bold
           color: Color.create ("#ff5D5D5D")
       }

 and I'm getting:

umlauts_cascades.png

so this should have high priority to be fixed !
