    Not exactly. LastResort.dfont (2.4 MB) is in System/Library/Fonts (under

    But I was able to put LastResort.ttf (5.1 MB) into Library/Fonts.

    Before I added LastResort.ttf, some Sindhi characters were displayed only as
    unknown-character icons.

    After I added LastResort.ttf, the same Sindhi characters are represented with
    their LastResort substitutes.

    (Apple's Font Book doesn't recognize either of these fonts.)
