I am doing a lot of research on font usage and internationalization.  

Up until this point, I had been doing a lot with Verdana but I know realized that using Verdana gives me quite a limited glyph set and hurts my ability to use a wide variety of international characters.

I know there are some obvious ways in CSS to give the option of using alternative fonts that may have better character support for certain languages but it seems like there is varying browser support.

Are there any good resources that you guys provide or that someone can point me to?

I just want the most people to be able to read my content regardless of what character or accent mark that I am using.

Cheers,
Justin Thorp
