Use of a bookmarklet script to force specification of a correct Unicode font in some faulty webpages' style sheet coding.

TRY IT !

This bookmarklet script simply appends the stylesheet of the page which is currently displayed on screen, and specify the use of the "Arial Unicode MS" font, which is a valid Unicode True Type fontset for most available multinational languages ("Times New Roman" is nevertheless specified in second position for Vietnamese, just in case a computer doesn't have "Arial Unicode MS" installed). 

  Bookmark this script

TEST.
1. Go to this page
2. if it still displays like in the image above, then just call the script in your favorite links, 
and that page will show all accented vowels..
