I should mention that Microsoft plans to end support for Visual Basic scripting soon, so if you have access to an XP machine, I suggest converting all the glyphs yourself and storing them in a folder in your project. Then it may be possible to use the previous stack supplied as the means to convert the vector to a bitmap and present it to your user. 

I am not sure how complex the language is that you are using, so maybe this method would not work. I would hate to have to do this for Mandarin!!
