    I am not sure why you marked it "off-topic", because Code2001,
    another of your fonts, is the only font I have found for some of the
    Unicode math characters, and a font is necessary in order to make
    Unicode usable. There is still missing a font for a number of math
    characters. Wish the TeX/LaTeX/AMS fonts would be available for Unicode.

    I just ignored these warnings, and then it seems to work.

    You might try signing up as a free Apple developer <http://>, and make a bug report at <https://> (there is a link there). Make sure to describe
    it as a Mac OS X.4 bug, so they don't try to charge you. :-)

    Feel similarly.
