Hi Sims,

Normally, you shouldn't have to specify a font for unicode, as long as  
the default font contains the glyph you want to use. If the default  
font doesn't have this glyph, you need to specify the font explicitly.  
There are still a few bugs in Revolution that make this a little  
problematic and you always need to test to make sure that unicode  
works in Revolution.

Regarding HTML, a default font with no font styles and colours should  
work without a hassle, but if you are using a special font and styled  
text, you will need to test. Font information is usually included with  
the htmlText. If you are creating an HTML file for a web site, you may  
need to add encoding information in the meta headers.

Best regards,
