I can't reproduce that bug. When I turned on ruler-mode, I see both characters in the ruler head. Isn't it a bug specific to Windows?Yes, it seems the problem is specific to Windows. Work well on my GNU/Linux box.
I'm not sure that this is just a Windows issue -- it may affect some X implementations as well. The problem seems to be that the wildcard pattern generated in `char-displayable-p' is not matching multiple hyphen separated portions of the font name. That is, '-*-*-iso8859-1' doesn't match any fonts while '-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1' does.
Here's a patch that corrects the problem (and should work reliably on all X implementations) but which runs very slowly on Windows.
