Hi All,

I have a very basic doubt regarding the Unicodes. Consider i am streaming a sequence of unicodes that represents my regional language into a file. How could it be possible for any editor to show them without the fonts not installed in the system?

Thanks in Advance!!!
dinesh.

Characters that can't be displayed -like control characters, or characters for which no font is installed- are often displayed as a little square.
