OS X Quicklook Font – Preview international characters

To Show international characters in OS X (tested on Leopard, Snow Leopard, Lion) Quuicklook Font Preview edit file:

/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CoreText.framework/Versions/A/Resources/SampleSupport.plist

Add characters you want to show in corresponing key.

How to:
1. To open folder paste

"/System/Library/Frameworks/ApplicationServices.framework/Versions/A/Frameworks/CoreText.framework/Versions/A/Resources"

in Go to Folder menu (Menu/Go/Got To Folder…) (Command-Shift-G by default)

2. open file “SampleSupport.plist” in any unicode text editor (i prefer Smultron).

3. edit corresponding keys

For me:

<key>en</key>
<string>ABCDEFGHIJKLM
NOPQRSTUVWXYZ
abcdefghijklm
nopqrstuvwxyz
1234567890
ĀČĒĢĪĶĻŅŖŠŪŽ
āčēģīķļņŗšūž
ЙЦУКЕНГШЩЗФЫВА
йцукенгшщзфыва
</string>

4. save
