- Oct 1, 2004Hi, Alex,

is that I want it to be accessible to as many people as possible
*without* asking them to download special fonts, let alone asking
them to download a new browser.

The characters in the ranges Basic Latin (0127), Latin-1 Supplement
(128255), and Latin Extended A (256383) are okay. But the
characters in Latin Extended Additional (76807935) still come out
as squares (i.e. missing glyph).
The page displays in Times New Roman, which is unicode-compliant in
the lower ranges, but does not include glyphs for all the characters
in the Latin Extended Additional character range.
I used Windows XP and Internet Explorer 6, which is probably a
pretty common combination nowadays.
Also, when I follow the link marked "Assuming you have a collection
of fonts, you can try this test" I get an error message: "Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /alex/043/29/ on this server."
