One thing that we recently noticed is that if you use MS Sans Serif for
Japanese it works OK on XP, but on Win 2K the characters aren't there. If I
install the XP font on Win 2K it works OK. There must have been some
upgrade to the font.

BTW: selecting "MS Shell Dlg" doesn't seem to be possible in resource


Doesn't work with VS2005 either.

In VS 2005 - resource editor - dialog properties you have a font selection
field (with a '...' button that opens the standard font selection dialog).
It is not possible to select "MS Shell Dlg" from there (because that only
shows *real fonts*, and "MS Shell Dlg" is not a real font)

But you also have a boolean field called "Use System Font"
Set that to True and it will reset the font to "MS Shell Dlg"
