About test

Why Mac and Unix? The Windows OS is very unpopular between developers and their (Microsoft) Explorer, together with Outlook Express, Outlook, Miscrosoft Office and other Internet and non-Internet applications (each version) is very vulnerable means unsecure and very dangerous especially for average (non-advanced) users. But Windows have very strong Unicode support and really have no problems with fonts at all. So, base idea of this test is to find font-family where non-western serif will be displayed (substituted) everywhere as serif, sans-serif as sans-serif etc. means each generic familly to be displayed according to w3.org specification.
