    Neither Arial nor Courier New on XP+SP2 even have a glyph for
    the combining caron. What should display (in a plain text editor,
    at least) is the Arial or Courier "J" followed by a little box.

    system, all subsequent messages display the combination properly,
    but that's because I have OE configured to display only plain text
    and have selected an appropriate display font.
