Yes i will show  it, but you will have to wait  4 days until Tuesday because
it is  Easter weekend and  this Friday is  holiday in my  area (my G4  is at

Oh ? OK. I'll remove that.

What i can't figure out is that within OSX you can have any unicode char you
want providing that the application  is unicode compliant and that character
is accessible at least from the system character palette. 

But for Emacs there is that  strange remapping for parts of the unicode set.
So some chars are ok and some not. 

I will try to help as i can to fix that.

I meant a working one :) I built mine with the help of the documentation and
by picking some bits from the web with lots of try and errors.

Given the fact  that some parts (mule-unicode) are  not fully functionnal, i
was not sure that my definition is correct. 

You pointed that it is not.

Interesting : i never noticed the face-font-rescale-alist parameter.
Thank you.
