    The Microsoft Typography Hinting and Production Guidelines document
    defines criteria that must be met by fonts that are produced *for
    Microsoft* (i.e. are commissioned for or licensed by Microsoft for
    inclusion in Windows, Office or other applications). There is a passage
    "For Microsoft fonts, a legal restriction requires that character code
    240 (Apple logo) in 'cmap' 1, 0 must be mapped to the missing glyph."
    ( ).

    I see no reason for drawing a conclusion that in general-purpose fonts,
    the Apple logo should not be accessible on Windows.
