RE: MSS Corefonts

Some of the fonts used in WTLIB are some built-in ones. I guess they are loaded into memory when the program starts. But as we know linux is not windows, and the font system is different. I actually don't know why or if dynamically loaded fonts works/not works through wine. At least they don't work in wtlib.
The M, the *, a few hebrew/greek letters and several special characters are loaded from these special fonts. I have seen their names - they are [at least]: WtDoWtlibraryDocMarkup02, WtHeFrankRihellBook, WtUDiZapfDinlCtL and WtUtSerifBook. Ok might exist others, but these are the ones that show up in the fonts list of Openoffice when I run wtlib [on windoze].
If anyone find out a way to utilize these fonts, or to get around the problem, please let us know.
Lastly, a more general font tip: In some languages special stress marks are available. For example, in Norwegian the word Stefanus has a little dot under the first e, to show correct stress (Norwegian does not officialy have stress marks, so the society put this into NWT). Some fonts might not display all these dots and other stress marks. For Norwegian using Verdana as text window font will show them. Maybe other fonts work, too. Experiment. :)
