Font Coverage in Windows
Bob Rasmussen - Rasmussen Software, Inc.
One of the difficulties in dealing with multilingual data has been determining whether a font contains glyphs for particular characters. This presentation describes a method for doing so, with focus on the Windows environment. Techniques to be covered include:
* Determining whether a character is in a TrueType font.
These techniques when used together result in a display module with the ability to display a wide variety of Unicode characters, without operator intervention.
