My mobile phone has Polaris Office default installed on it, but when I open some files I cannot see special characters, like "á", "à", "ç" etc., there is just a space character when it would have one of those special characters...

Palliatively, I installed Kingsoft Office, although it is so big for my device (it is about 13MB in size, and all my internal storage is just 180MB)... So I had to remove some apps to install it.

Well, it does the work well: show special characters without issues.

But I wait for a solution for Polaris Office...

Might be best to upvote and mark this answer as accepted to show that the issue is solved by using an alternative application. – t0mm13b Jan 7 '13 at 20:05
But I would like to wait for a definitive solution, since it could save some bytes (an update, an hack or an add-on of Polaris Office would be smaller...). – kokbira Jan 7 '13 at 20:07
Also I cannot upvote my own answer... – kokbira Jan 7 '13 at 20:12
