    Hi

    I have just got the Desire Z. Immediately i see an issue when writing SMS's. Often the sms program chages local danish character to capital letters when i write. Seems to be the same in the original application and handcent sms.

    Anybody seen this?

    A couple of suggestions....

    Assuming that the language is set to Danish (Settings/Language & keyboard), look in Touch Input and check International keyboard and/or Bilingual prediction to see if there's a clash of languages in either.

    Lars, do you still have this problem, or did you find a solution?

    I also have this problem. I have a HTC Desire Z bought in Denmark, and I get capital letters when typing in either Handcent or regular Messages application.

    I can solve it by a (somewhat strange?) workaround:
    1. Pull down the notification toolbar/curtain
    2. Pull it up again
    3. Press FN + spacebar to activate til xt9 menu
    4. Select Danish (although it's already active)

    After these four steps the Danish characters (

    I've got this problem on my HTC DesireZ too. I'm norwegian and thus I use the norwegian part, and not the danish, but the problem is the same. The easiest way to work around it I've found to be just hitting the "Menu" button twice (once to open it and one more time to close it), and it seems to be working fine after this. It's pretty annoying tbh.

    This problem sounds familiar. A friend of mine came up with a simple solution: when in any text box just tap the text box even if the focus is already at the box. There you go, no capital skandic characters :)
