in thread Windows GUI programs in Perl

I think you mean "available in the currently selected code page" not in the font. Yes, the (TM) symbol is present in the A[0-F] range in the Western code page. I chose that one because, since it is indeed in the 8-bit character set, it will be present in every (normal) font. That way, I didn't have to worry about which font the demo program was using, reducing the problem space.

A font will contain multiple encoding vectors, which map the character ordinal to a glyph (which has some internal ID). Latin-1, Latin-2, etc. may all be present in the same font file.

The characters I'm interested in, ultimatly, are not in that Latin-1 range. That was just a simple test.

I'm thinking the way to cope for now is to access the window handle and call SetWindowText directly, to draw the button faces. But my proof-of-concept is doing something funny...
