    Ok, I'm a bit confused here... I understand that the major barrier to
    display of Unicode lies in fonts, but how does this relate to platforms? I
    have a document composed in OpenOffice on Windows using the Verdana font
    and the Unikey unicode keyboard driver for Vietnamese. I open the same
    document in my OpenOffice on Linux (Kubuntu) after installing the Verdana
    font and many of diacritical marks are now on the wrong letters or shifted
    to the right one character space. If even the font displays aren't
    consistent across platforms where in lies the problem and how can I
    distribute consistently displayed documents?
