Should I check this in? I believe it monotonically improves the situation from before from the user perspective, and it's definitely a step forward from the code perspective. The Greek symbol problem is still there, but at least wasn't made worse.

This one beats me as fdesc is used much before then. However it made me notice a typo just above: line 496 should be:

OK, this helps.  No more crashes.
It can display more characters now, like the up-arrow in the screenshots I'm attaching.

However, it still uses the wrong fonts for symbols (and for greek) (-apple-MS_Mincho in my case). I think that's what you pointed out earlier.

Following a posting here by Kenichi Handa here (and Jason's message in this thread):


I tried this:

  '("Lucida Grande" . "iso10646-1"))

This works great for Lucida, but I couldn't get Monaco or Courier New to work.

As has been pointed out the greek characters probably shouldn't be "symbol" in the first place.
