Polish characters display on Mini

Hi all,

I bought a Mini for my girlfriend as a present. She enjoys reading books in Polish and was using her Galaxy S2 up until now as an eReader.

We are using Calibre to convert the txt books to ePub.

In the txt, the Polish signs are there and we had to tweak the encoding option of Moon Reader for Android to have it display Polish signs correctly.

When transferring ePub books with Calibre onto the Kobo, the Polish signs are all screwed up. Same thing transferring the txt file.
The Polish signs show up either as ? or a black bar or sometimes other foreign signs, but not the correct ones.

Are we missing something? The signs are definitely in the charset because it shows eastern europe signs sometimes (like or ł) but in the wrong order and in the wrong spot.

Thanks for your help!
