List all used characters? List all not found characters?

Is there any method to find whether a font used/embedded in an ePub I work upon, contains (or not) some characters?
I mean sort of "Warning" the character #$xxxx in file XYZ.xhtml is not found in the font used to display it....

I think it'd be a nice feature for all those like me use decorative fonts (notably known for their simplsitic support of even the punctuation) and/or old books.

I'm not sure if this is the same thing, but I think I've used the reports tool in the calibre ebook editor to do that. The characters report it generates shows unrenderable characters at the end as a boxed "?".

I looked for this function and did not find it, then I looked in the net and in its online help.

Why I do not have this function on my calibre? Is it something that has to be activated, a plug-in that is missing etc etc?

Looks like you lost the bottom of the menu. Try using the arrow keys to get to it, or press Ctrl+Shift+R

I am on XP therefore I have to use max 2.48.
Maybe this is why.
I'll check this on another computer where I have 3.30.

I think you mean 1.48, and that is almost certainly why.

The Sigil EPUB editor has similar report, IIRC it has been there 'forever'. I'm not sure what version of Sigil runs on XP - like calibre it uses Qt. Ask in the Sigil forum

2.5 WILL NOT install on XP
I mange to have 2.0 installed on XP before Kovid turned it OFF the installer because so many people had compatibility issues (I managed to not trip those in my usage)

@Ghitulescu - this thread has detail ==> Why can't I install the latest calibre on Windows XP?
