You're probably right, although support for unicode fonts in Rev  
fields is free, since Rev just leverages the OS's unicode  
capabilities. Besides, rendering the font names in unicode was a  
challenge that had taken on a life of its own. It had to be beaten. ;-)

Now I can go back to whatever productive work I was doing before.
