I'm trying to figure out if a downloaded TTF file of an OS X system
font is missing the glyph I need. I installed the font in Scroll PDF
Exporter and the character is missing from the generated PDF, so to
pin down the reason I need to verify that the glyph is actually in the
font.

I could install it in Windows, but for future reference I'd like to
find a utility that can open uninstalled TTF files.
