    Note that I wrote 'Andale Mono WT'. The WT stands for something like World
    Type. This is a massively extended version of Andale Mono that supports all
    of Unicode 3.1. It also comes in three of different flavours, I believe,
    depending on whether you want Traditional or Simplified Chinese, or
    Japanese forms for the Han characters.
