You can download fonts from Microsoft, in Multilanguage Support packs.
These packs add fonts and NLS (National Language Support) files to
the operating system (Win 95/NT), which any application can then use.
On Microsoft's web site, under "Internet Explorer add-ons", look for
"IE 3.0 Multilanguage Support", or go straight to:


Also check the CD that the operating system came on: there may be
fonts and NLS files that are not installed by default, eg in the
LANGPACK directory for NT 4.0, or via
Control Panel | Add/Remove Programs | Multilanguage Support
for Win 95.
