    I know this has been asked and answered before, but I cannot find any
    reference to it now that I need the answer.

    Unicode, or also otherwise encoded files in Internet Explorer display with
    glyphs taken from fonts in a certain order. I.e., Arabic may not be
    displaying with the font specified for Arabic, but with those from a Latin
    font if it has Arabic; Chinese pages usually display with a mixture of serif
    and sansserif fonts since (I think) it first displays Japanese characters,
    and only graps the Chinese specified font for missing characters.

    Where can I read more about this issue?
