Note also that the Unicode website has a link to a page posting information in case of display problems:
But the page is a bit outdated, notably when it gives a hint for Java applications. It currently gives only a link to http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.4.2/docs/guide/intl/fontprop.html for the Sun instructions but this concerns Java 1.4 with a file named "font.properties" (whose support is really phasing out since long enough).
I think this should include some sentences about how to set the font configuration file in Java 5 (or now also Java 6) which has many new features allowing better internationalization, and more precise specification of the font converage per script, or character range, or character subset, or platform:
(The installation of the JRE provides default builtin support for more scripts with this new format, so setting up this file is needed only for less common scripts that are not installed by default on various OSes, and for which customization is necessary to specify the appropriate fonts.)
