Abstract. A new attempt is made to explain the EUV spectrum of the hot DO white dwarf RE 0503-289. The inclusion of metals in the model atmospheres does not provide enough opacity to fit the observed EUV flux level. This can only be achieved by reducing Teff to 65000 K. This, however, is in contradiction to optical and UV data which suggest Teff=70000 K. It is also shown that further progress in detailed EUV spectral fitting is not possible because of the lack of precise atomic data for iron group elements.
We present first FUSE observations of the hot white dwarf DO HS 0713+3958, which shows signatures of an extremely hot and fast wind in UV/optical spectra. Photospheric lines cannot be identified.
