NT 4.0, Service Pack 5 included fixes to provide better support for the
larger fonts, like Arial Unicode, and several Chinese, Japanese, and Korean
fonts. Service Pack 6a incorporates Service Pack 5. However, I understand
that Windows 2000 Professional has better support for large fonts than
Windows NT SP 5 or SP 6a.

Subject: Stability problems with "Arial Unicode MS" Font

Mrs. Mr.

We use the Font "Arial Unicode MS" version 0.84 and version 0.86
with windows NT4 on PC Pentium 450 MHZ.

Sometimes, usually when a locking screen occurs, the font is lost.
Meaning, instead of characters, squares appear on the GUI.

Any hint, clues about this problem will be very welcome.
