Ahh, the good old charmap! I forgot about it. Well, the font
(actually a number of them) shows, but still with most of the
characters missing. Interestingly, "Symbol" font suffers from the same
problem, and the characters that work are mostly in the same positions
in both of them. I haven't actually installed the Symbol font at all.
Character positions are correct. I took the charmap.exe from Win 3.11.

Thanks, I'll look into that. My fonts use "symbol" character set, I
might as well make it ansi or oem and modify the application
accordingly if it helps. The app (being 16-bit) and the font know
nothing about Unicode, so it might well mess things up.
