    This always means that a glyph for the character is not available in any
    of the fonts specified. On Win2K you can use the CharMap utility to see
    what glyphs a font actually provides.

    Fonts are evaluated in the order listed in the font-family property, so
    the first font that has a glyph for a character determines what glyph
    shows up (you can demonstrate this by putting your dingbats or greek
    font first in the list and see what happens :-)).

    I also find it useful to put a dingbat or wingdings-type font as the
    only global font to make sure that all flow objects are having their
    fonts set appropriately at a lower level when using a root-level font is
    not appropriate (for example, where different page sequences use very
    different fonts such that a single default font is not useful).
