      Not supported WELL. Because IIUC they reshape and such depending on what surrounds them. But If a font has a glyph for it, Vim should be able to display SOMETHING besides a "no character" block. That little rectangle displayed is not Vim's fault, it's the way the font tells you it has no such character.

      Looking at that page, I KNOW none of the fonts you listed have all those glyphs. DejaVu has a couple smiley faces but not anything else even remotely close to those.

      You can see the glyphs in your font using the "charmap" application on Windows. Open it up, set to see unicode ("Group by Unicode Subrange" helps narrow down what you're looking for, or you can search), and take a look at what's actually in each of those fonts.

      Good luck finding one...please post back if you do. I searched for a few minutes and only got a few pages saying that there aren't any general purpose fonts containing those characters.
