I do not know such editor, but you can try some of these utilities: http://www.portablefreeware.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=1162

at least some of them can view fonts which are not installed and use custom text to compare them. I have also some older util for this, but I am not able to remember its name now.

Thanks so much for your help. I have also tried a lot of softwares to see but most of them are really old and out of date and doesn't support Unicode characters. –  user433531 Dec 27 '11 at 12:20
