      Description

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE REQUEST :
      The Dialog font supports a wide variety of national currency symbols, but not the newly added currency symbols 20B9 (INDIAN RUPEE), 20BA (TURKISH LIRA), 20BD (RUSSIAN RUBLE). It would be nice if Dialog, and perhaps the other logical fonts supported these symbols.

      JUSTIFICATION :
      I have written code to display prices on websites in the user's local currency. All countries currency symbols are displayed properly except Indian Rupee, Turkish Lira and Russian Ruble.


      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      I would like to see the following currency symbols as depicted below

      1. 20B9 (INDIAN RUPEE)
      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_rupee_sign

      2. 20BA (TURKISH LIRA)
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Turkish_lira#/media/File:Turkish_lira_symbol_black.svg

      3. 20BD (RUSSIAN RUBLE)
      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_ruble#/media/File:Ruble_sign_PT_Sans.png


      ACTUAL -
      just a blob

      ---------- BEGIN SOURCE ----------
      frame.add (new JLabel ("\u20B9") );
      frame.add (new JLabel ("\u20BA") );
      frame.add (new JLabel ("\u20BD") );
      ---------- END SOURCE ----------
