No, no, I know how to change my display fonts in Control Panel. I meant
that because Windows doesn't do any fancy font switching in title bars
to cover glyphs that aren't in the selected font (as, for example,
Notepad does), and because I don't always know exactly which glyphs are
covered by the font I did select, I don't know whether certain
non-Latin-1 characters will appear correctly or as boxes.
Sorry, it was late and I was tired and that was not the most coherent
message I've ever scratched out.
