Thanks for the writeup, jaytea.
On my monitor resolution (1280x1024), one of the graphics and one of the code tags cause the entire post to stretch beyond the full width of my monitor, making it a bit of a pain to read through (forcing me to scroll left and right for every line). If it's not too much trouble, you could improve the readability on non-widescreen monitors with a few adjustments.
In particular, the longest line from the $utfencodei(N) definition is causing the problem. Could you split that line up? Also, the graphic under the "Fonts and font linking" section is quite wide -- you could perhaps recreate the graphic with a multiple-line editbox instead.
