Hi;

Ok, I checked it some more. It does allow standard CJK characters. So the
only thing it complains about is characters in the 0x00-0x1f and 0x80-0x9f
range.

I understand your arguments about how these are not necessarily legit. But
Microsoft makes the Webdings fonts freely available and everyone has the
symbol & zapfdingbats fonts. You might want to make it an option to allow
any unicode value.

thanks - dave
