Please help,

How do I programmatically insert, or "TextOut," special, or "extended,"
characters (contained in font files) into the drawing area of my window? For
instance, I have a True-Type font file containing several hundred glyphs of
symbols/characters other than the "regular" output characters such as "abc"
etc. I want to be able to display any character within this font file. This
is a new "area" for me, and I'm having some initial difficulty accomplishing
this.

Thanks.
