Why Matlab doesn't support font for foreign language such as Czech. For example the character ě š č ř ž ý á í é.

I tried to publish my m-file to document. and then I surprised that the big and widely used software like Matlab doesn't support non-English language.The characters ě š č ř ž ý á ..., which is in Czech never display properly. Does anybody have experiments about it? I seen some where describing how to display some special characters on figure, etc... But publishing uses too much lines of text (to describe the functions)

Try this in your code
feature('DefaultCharacterSet', 'UTF8') %# for all Character support
or try 'Windows-1250' insted UTF8
'Windows-1250' for Central European languages that use Latin script, (Polish, Czech, Slovak, Hungarian, Slovene, Serbian, Croatian, Romanian and Albanian)
Note:- that UTF-8 can be used for all languages and is the recommended charset on the Internet.

What character encoding are you using? Might be that Czech is not supported for it. You could always change it.

I changed all showed character set :
'US-ASCII'
'Windows-1252'
'ISO-8859-1'
'Shift_JIS'
But doesn't help. Can you tell me a litte more about these character sets, when should I use it?

ISO-8859-2 has Czech.
The characters that are to appear, how are they being created? Are they part of string constants? Are they comments? Are you trying to create them with text() ?
