Well, it still doesn't work for me.  I now have the following code:

===================== SNIP ======================
#include <windows.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <wchar.h>

int
main ()
{
  static const wchar_t replacement_char[2] =
    {
      0xfffd, /* REPLACEMENT CHARACTER */
      0x2592  /* MEDIUM SHADE */
    };

  CONSOLE_FONT_INFOEX cfi;
  HWND cwnd = GetConsoleWindow ();
  HDC cdc = GetDC (cwnd);
  int rp_idx = 1;
  WORD gi[2] = { 0, 0 };

  memset (&cfi, 0, sizeof cfi);
  cfi.cbSize = sizeof cfi;
  if (GetCurrentConsoleFontEx (GetStdHandle (STD_OUTPUT_HANDLE), FALSE, &cfi))
    {
      printf ("font %ls\n", cfi.FaceName);
      HFONT hf = CreateFontW (cfi.dwFontSize.Y, cfi.dwFontSize.X,
			      0, 0, cfi.FontWeight, FALSE, FALSE, FALSE,
			      DEFAULT_CHARSET, OUT_DEFAULT_PRECIS,
			      CLIP_DEFAULT_PRECIS, DEFAULT_QUALITY,
			      FIXED_PITCH | FF_DONTCARE, cfi.FaceName);
      if (hf)
      	{
	  HFONT old_f = SelectObject(cdc, hf);
	  if (GetGlyphIndicesW (cdc, replacement_char, 2, gi,
				GGI_MARK_NONEXISTING_GLYPHS) != GDI_ERROR)
	    {
	      printf ("gi = %d %d\n", gi[0], gi[1]);
	      if (gi[0] != 0xffff)
		rp_idx = 0;
	    }
	  if (old_f)
	    old_f = SelectObject (cdc, old_f);
	  DeleteObject (hf);
	}
    }

  printf ("rp_idx = %d\n", rp_idx);
  return 0;
}
===================== SNAP ======================

Supposedly none of the fonts support 0xfffd:

  $ gcc -g -o cons cons.c -lgdi32
  $ ./cons
  font Consolas
  gi = 65535 879
  rp_idx = 1
  $ ./cons
  font Lucida Console
  gi = 65535 620
  rp_idx = 1
  $ ./cons
  font Courier New
  gi = 65535 372
  rp_idx = 1

So I'm still doing something wrong, apparently.  Any hint?


Thanks,
Corinna
