The global page isn't codepage 850. It is codepage 1207 and the only difference between 2.92 and 2.93 for that page is that the Times New Roman MT 30 font is 9 point instead of 10. While I don't like the font it is the only font that ships with OS/2 that has all the required glyphs.

This is unchanged from 2.92. I looked at it and am seeing some very weird and inconsistent behavior. At times I get 2 different fonts for the top and bottom hint lines which shouldn't be possible. I will see if I can figure out what is happening. Thanks
