    example instead of CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER IE WITH GRAVE (0x400) or
    CYRILLIC CAPITAL LETTER BIG YUS (0x46a) I see only squares. Other
    applications (Mozilla, Opera, Python IDLE) display these characters
    faultlessly, although they are using the same system fonts. Is this
    because Windows has built-in supports only an older version of

    PS: I tried it on Winodws XP Pro 2002 SP 2
