I have a better idea. Instead of adding the non-latin characters to the bitmap font of a skin (which is still my favorite approach), we could make Winamp replace those characters with Latin letters.

For example, I have a song: 09 Röyksopp - Running To The Sea feat. Susanne Sundfør. And since these letters are not included in the bitmap font Winamp will switch to Verdana.



In order to avoid this Winamp should replace "ö" with "o" and "ø" also with "o". And now we would have:
09 Royksopp - Running To The Sea feat. Susanne Sundfor and we can use the bitmap font:



It is not perfect but still waaaaaay better than switching between bitmap font and alternative font. What do you think?
