No, I don't agree. I don't care if a particular user is able to show
Hawaiian in general or not. It may be a problem worth discussing, but not
one that I am interested in.

I'm talking about the concerns of someone running a web site. I don't care
if an OS does Unicode or not, as long as I can produce Unicode web pages
that browsers can show. Why should a browser be limited by the shortcomings
of the platform it runs on? Unicode and HMTL4 are standards that has been
around for some time. I wish browsers would fully support them, regardless
of used OS.

(Argh.... this is just too frustrating. I'll jump infront of a car if
someone else suggest that I should just install a god damn font. ;-)
