Slash characters (\ and /) can be drawn on Canvas by using drawChar() and drawString() methods. However, when using languages of the Nokia Series 40 5th Edition SDK World Languages pack or a Series 40 5th Edition device, these methods don't work with Arabic and Hebrew languages, resulting in missing slashes.
