The irony of it (was Re: Can browsers show text? I don't think so!)

The irony of it, that Linux users are much better organized, font-wise, than
Windows users, thanks to Markus Kuhn's ISO 10646 X11 fonts which come with
the XFree86 v4.0 distribution. I have yet to find Ethiopic or Cherokee
anywhere on a default Win2000/XP install. So that Mozilla on Linux displays
all characters fine. Except those which need complex rendering that X11
can't support: Arabic and Indic.
