It works fine in LibreOffice running on Win 7, even for copy/paste of 
the strings.  I could not make it work in Chrome or BabelPad on Win 7.  
It's possible that it would work in BabelPad and Chrome under newer 
versions of Windows.  I suspect that lack of correct display is caused 
by obsolete font engines.
