    Verdana (at least the version of Windows XP) does not include
    Vietnamese glyphs. Your program takes the Vietnamese glyphs
    from some other typeface, perhaps Tahoma.
    Tahoma, by the way, has only two fonts: plain and bold.

    Test your fonts here:

    However, your browser(s) may take the necessary glyphs from other
    fonts - not from the one you selected.
