My Windows 95 machine displays Unicode text *substantially* better with
Uniscribe than it did without. Not only glyph support, but RTL and
Arabic shaping work well -- something I was once told couldn't be done
with Win95. In fact, the only significant problem I have had, apart
from missing glyphs for certain scripts and characters, was with the
Hawaiian Web-font example that Michael Jansson asked me to try.
