It's not really enough.  I do read enough French, and a tad of German
and Spanish, that I'd like to be able to see glyphs for those languages.   
Until a fixed-width Unicode font becomes available for Windows, that's
not going to happen.  The only Unicode font I've found is "Arial Unicode
MS" (I don't believe Microsoft distributes it anymore, at least not for
free anyway.), but of course it is not compatible with PuTTY, MS Telnet
or TeraTerm.

MS Gothic also works fine with TeraTerm (which has two indespensible
features very superior to PuTTY: serial connection and printing of
Japanese via Windows printer control. [I need to be able to choose my
printer.])  I am still testing PuTTY, but it seems to have a serious
problem with painting some strings to the display, i.e., it is VERY slow
compared with TeraTerm.

It's MORE than "useful" for Japanese pages encoded in UTF-8!  Thank you
very much for that!

The terminal emulator is there (PuTTY); it's the font that is missing.
