You were asking for supported tokens in the language, so that's what the 
list includes. I just noticed a couple of entries that are now fully 
cross-platform, so I removed them and updated the text file a moment 
ago. <>

BTW, while checking with one of the engineers this morning about 
cross-platform inks, I asked about the font issue. He said it doesn't 
occur on his machine (nor does it on my Ubuntu installation) so he's not 
sure what's going on with that. He mentioned that users should ensure 
they have the right fonts installed, but I think you've already done 
that. The last time I worked with someone who had the problem it turned 
out to be their font manager, but I don't know enough about it to expand 
on that. He updated his copy and the problem went away.
