BTW, Andrew Cunningham noted in PM that my silent assumption
that “font supporting given characters” implies simple-rendering is
wrong: Graphite fonts have an embedded renderer.

So it makes sense to explicitly augment my restrictions to:

  Suppose that the given Unicode characters are supported by an
  OpenType font available on the system;

  The text does not require complex rendering.

Are are any Windows applications designed for use by “population at
large” which support rendering such Unicode text? By default? By
suitable tuneup within limits of a D-grade sophomore student? Are
there any web browsers (except FF — see for-FF recipes in my OP) which
can be tuned in this way?

  (I distrubute solutions to math HW as a Unicode text nowadays. ;-)
