If you're going to use the patch I submitted to the wiki with fallback
font support, don't -- I fixed a couple of non-critical bugs I found
after I submitted the patch to the wiki, but I didn't bother to send in
a new patch since my old one hadn't been approved yet. I can post the
updated patch to this thread in ~6 hours if you guys do intend to use
the code I wrote.
