Um... I just downloaded version 6.0* of PhotoPlus, just for fun, and guess
what? It's not a Unicode application - it has imports for the *A version of
the Windows APIs, not the *W.
So it really doesn't matter what fonts you throw at it, you're going to see
question marks when dealing with text outside your system's default
codepage. This is the whole point that Unicode is supposed to solve.
* version 6.0 is apparently the free version, you have to pay for the newer
versions, so maybe the newer ones are Unicode?
