    (A little off topic, but I hope you don’t mind.)


    A surprising (to me, anyway) number of TT or OT non-symbol fonts do

    not have glyphs for the ordinary roman characters. If you are

    creating a font chooser dialog in Java and want to display a sample

    string, how do you find a reasonable string of characters that do have glyphs?


    Any suggestions appreciated.
