The fonts that show up as boxes is still not as bad. JOSM saves/uploads the
OSM file with proper unicode characters even when its rendering box letters.
Try opening the OSM file in an gedit/wordpad and it should appear proper
assuming ur sys has fonts installed.

Below is the suggestion I got from Gora on a similar query.
