Just a note that as character set is Unicode based it could be possible
that some glyphs are not included in fonts. So either we just try to
draw it with specified glyph (and get dummy glyph) or it should be
detected by some party and just use glyphs that are included. Actually
it is also possible to have 0 glyphs loaded ;). I am not so sure is this
so nice, but thats the current state.
