    I can partly confirm this problem, with Windows Vista Business, fully
    updated except for SP1 (which disables printing).

    I have lots of Unicode fonts installed. With Firefox and my test

    I normally see nearly all of the proper characters. After installing the
    Last Resort font, its characters replace the proper ones for Thai and Indic.

    With Internet Explorer 7, I normally see lots of squares. After installing
    the Last Resort font, I still see squares. None of the Last Resort
    characters appear.
