I want to be able to display the unicode characters , , , and (among others) in emacs in screen in PuTTy. I can see the first one by setting the font to Courier New, or I can see the second and third by setting the font to DejaVu Sans Mono. The square cup shows up as a box in both fonts, and neither can display all of and and .

Is there a way to specify a font fallback in PuTTy? (I've gotten used to Courier New, and would like to keep it, but display more characters.) Alternatively, how do I get PuTTy to display the unicode characters I want?

I use the GNU Unifont with putty for some time now. Get the font, enable the monospaced flag, install it and configure putty to use it.
