OR, you can download, from the FREE MS Typography (TrueType core fonts for the Web),
the font verdan32.exe: Verdana for Win95/98 and NT
(asof Jan 25, 1999, ONLY the Verdana font has the Vietnamese Unicode hidden).
OR, if you own MS Office 97, the new font Tahoma (May 98) contains all Vietnamese characters but undocumented by MS:
For more information:
To convert VISCII text to Unicode text(both endians): vis2u10.zip (18 KBytes)
Unicode text sample: vnuni.htm (with Big-endian/Unix BOM-Bytes Order Mark)
Unicode text sample: vnums.htm (with Little-endian/Intel/Microsoft BOM)
Netscape 4.0+ did a good job to read the BOM correctly and processed it accordingly.
(Internally the 2 files are different).
Another Unicode sample:
(in Little-endian/Intel/MS coded format with NO BOM)
(Vietnamese samples have some typos, and NOT font problems)
MS Windows 2000 has many more Unicode fonts containing Vietnamese-encoding:
Times New Roman
and the classic Tahoma and Verdana.
Use Accessories/Wordpad to see the fonts and the encoding.

With LeVan's new Mozilla.exe, you can read easily by selecting View/Encoding/Vietnamese (VISCII), then Reload:
Same text in VISCII: vnvis.htm
Same text in VIQR : vnviqr.htm
Otherwise, read the old-fashioned text:
Same text in VIQR(no charset defined) : vnviq.htm
Same text captured in 2 pictures, if you have no VISCII fonts installed: vnuni1.jpg... vnuni2.jpg
Trichlor's VISCII-Unicode mapping is correct, so to speak: http://www.trichlor.org/vietstd/document/unicode.html
VISCII-Unicode mapping (with Hex and Decimal values): visuni.txt
VISCII-Unicode mapping sorted by Unicode: visuns.txt
VISCII-Unicode mapping sorted alphabetically by VIQR: visuna.txt
VISCII, and many other fonts (VPS, VNI, etc.) are missing the pure Unicode for the currency of Vietnam, the DONG SIGN, at 0x20AB.
My description of the glyph: SUPERSCRIPT LATIN SMALL LETTER D WITH STROKE AND UNDERLINED
(similar to the US CENTS sign)

Will work also under NT 4.0, with no problem, thanks to a very well-done makefile.
