I want to use a custom font selector based on a drawgrid. Its easy enough to get a list of installed fonts and display them. Its also easy enough to change the display so that the font name is in its own font. Unfortunately I don't read Wingding so how can I tell if a font is going to be unreadable to an anverage English speaking user?

Using D2006
