Do these display properly?

go to microsoft's website, surely, somewhere. look up 'fonts', and go on from there.
 
but having those fonts hanging around for no other reason than to display Athelwulf's hobbies is I think a waste of system resources
 
item 2 displays as a string of question marks.
below that appears to be japanese or korean.

Is "below that" still item two? If it is, then it's a picture of the Japanese text which is item two. Try highlighting stuff and see what's a picture and what isn't.

You say that until you want to read what I wrote in Chinese, or Arabic. Then you'll go, "Oh how I wish I partook in Athelwulf's hobbies!" :p

I think he actually just typed in question marks?????????????????

Nope. I'll get a screen shot and show you guys what it looks like to me.
 
What makes you think I won't?

... it seems like ages now that I thought you were shopping around for a new computer. But I'm sure with an answer like that you're also keeping tabs on Apple hardware, and that there are several revisions on the horizon, like there's talk of a new subnotebook that will be using flash memory.

I see.

why are you using a small font?

I add to the interrogation: Who are you, and how do you know I've been looking at Macs for a while now?
 
I didn't know you used OS X.
Yes, I'm the rare IT professional who doesn't enjoy spending an hour a day wrestling with Windows. I regard my computer as an appliance and the damn thing had better be as easy to take for granted as my car. I have to use a Windows box for work and I can't believe the computer geeks, who write software for other computer geeks, believe they're going to market an "information infrastructure" built upon that drenn to five-point-something billion people who can't work a photocopier or set the clock on a VCR.
I have keyboard layouts for different languages in the language toolbar on my taskbar (I use XP). Have you tried this, and does it work?
It works fine although I haven't tried it here. The problem is that I'm not familiar with the keyboard layouts so finding the right key for the character takes forever. It's faster to pick it off a menu even if it requires scrolling.

I don't know how you're numbering your items but Old English is on top, Japanese in the middle, and Arabic on the bottom. You can tell Japanese from Chinese because of the peppering of simplified alphabetic characters that look like cursive writing. You can distinguish Korean from either of those two because its alphabetic characters have honest-to-Euclid circles.

Fair enough, but I find that all the ones I use, except the Russian one, are very similar to the standard English keyboard.

I got the items labeled in bold with "Item one", "Item two", etc.
