That’s odd.  I’m using Emacs 24 on Windows 7 64-bit (and before this
I’ve used 23 on both 7 and Vista), and my font is set to Consolas.
Emacs happily substitutes other fonts where Consolas is missing glyphs
(see the attached screenshot).  The only snag is that it takes a while
to find a suitable font, at times.

I’m using a precompiled binary from emacs-for-windows.[1] Perhaps it
has special support for font substitution or something…
