Arial MS Unicode Questions

Arial MS Unicode Questions

Arial MS Unicode Questions

I am designing a Crystal report to return a multitude of languages (Chinese, Polish, Spanish).  I found that the non-english languages display properly in Arial MS Unicode.  Here are some questions:

1.) Are there any Chinese characters that are not supported by Arial MS Unicode?  I want to avoid user call back and redesign if there are common characters the font does not handle.

2.) In your expereince does this method work or am I better off creating a separate report for each language using natvie fonts like ??.  I really, really, really, really want to avoid seperate reports per language.

3.) The arial MS Unicode font uses more vertical line space than the Arial font to make room for extra large glyphs.  I can adjust the line spaceing to compensate but when I do this the bottom of characters like 'g' and 'y' get chopped.  Has anyone found a workaround for to take up less line space without compromizing the readability?

4.) has anyone experienced any export issues from Crystal to Excel or PDF with Arial MS Unicode font

5.) If you have experince with Crystal and Arial MS Unicode please share your experience
