Earlier I only read the 404 file not found error message. But, I see
that Wikipedia does propose the correct link. However, on my system
the automatic redirection to the correct link does not work, even after
waiting a full minute. Maybe my browser security settings forbid
Unfortunately, many of the charts display with "missing glyph" boxes,
even though I have fonts installed and the browser properly configured
to display these characters. This seems to happen mostly in the Latin/
Greek/Cyrillic ranges. What might be happening is that the author,
in the CSS sheet, has specified a list of fonts beginning with "Arial Unicode MS".
When MSIE 6.0 finds a page linked to a style sheet such as this, it first looks
for "Arial Unicode MS". If the browser does not find "Arial Unicode MS", it
is very happy to display the missing glyph boxes from regular "Arial" and
disregards the rest of the font suggestion list.
This must happen to a lot of other people, too. Many people do not have
the "Arial Unicode MS" font, but the regular "Arial" font is ubiquitous.
The web pages for the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in many
languages suffer from this same "error". They are not readable on
many systems. (Unless they've been fixed since the last time I looked.)
