Modify built-in font-sampling method

Thanks so much for the detailed instructions. I got to #4 so definitely progress. Got lost in the Character Palette/Flag menu, but still can see more fonts than I originally could. Thanks!

Great Kissamo, ready?

Go to Apple Menu and select System Preferences. The window's upper row lets you select Language and Text, once there select the tab Input Sources. First off, turn Keyboard & Character Viewer on, next add the hook on Show Input in menu bar. Done.

Exit System Preferences, click your desktop and you're in Finder. Next to the Menu bar's Date you should see a US flag and this is your Flag menu. Its 3rd item might be Show Character Viewer which is what you want. From here you're on sacred ground.

And don't neglect the Asian fonts. Cheers!
