Shame on you if you don't know what
"font fallback" is:

    A fallback font is a reserve typeface
    containing symbols for as many Unicode
    characters as possible. When a display
    system encounters a character that is not
    part of the repertoire of any of the other
    available fonts, a symbol from a fallback
    font is used instead.
