Here I attached 3 sample TTFs that I modified UnicodeRanges
and CodePageRanges by binary editor.
All bits in UnicodeRange in OS/2 are set, so all Unicode
characters are declared as available. CodePageRange
bits are left (original vs17.ttf declares Latin1 codepage).
All bits in CodePageRange in OS/2 are set, so all codepages
are declared as available. UnicodeRange bits are left
(original vs17.ttf declares CJK Symbols & Punctuations only).
All bits in UnicodeRange and CodePageRange in OS/2 are set.
When I install in Microsoft Windows XP and check wordpad.exe,
vs17-ucr.ttf is shown as Latin1 font, but vs17-cpr, vs17-ucr+cpr
are shown as capable: Big5, GB2312, Arabic, Greek, Cyrillic,
Symbol, Thai, Turky, Baltic, Korean Wansung, Korean Johab,
Vietnamese, Hebrew, Latin1, Central European, and Japanese.
So I think CodePageRange may be important. Please try the fonts
in your environment.
