> Revolution 2.1.2 claims improvements in Unicode handling, but 
> it has gone backwards in at least one area and has also 
> failed to fix a previously reported serious bug:
> 
> * Unlike earlier versions where it worked, characters in the 
> Unicode Private Use Area are now rendered by the generic 
> no-glyph-here symbol and not the corresponding glyphs in 
> custom fonts installed with those characters.
> 
> * Unicode characters with code points that end in "09" are 
> still interpreted as tabs, ASCII character 9, in Revolution 
> table fields.

> Part of my research depends on manipulation of Unicode text 
> and flakiness here is very disturbing. (I don't believe this 
> is an OS issue, but I'm using Mac OS X 10.3.1, Panther.)
