I get the little square boxes, implying that it doesn't have the font.
I don't know where one *gets* those fonts; but, like you, I haven't
had any reason to move this up the list of things to look into.

Well, the OP asked whether it'd be worthwhile.  Did you notice a
significant performance difference after installing that memory?  When
I bought my LJ1200se, I did a lot of DejaGoogling and found a number
of people who'd installed additional memory; but of those who commented
on performance before/after, *all* of them noted that they didn't see
any difference in performance.  Now, I haven't done this experiment
myself; if you've seen a difference in performance, than you have.
But without such a difference in performance, I can't see how it's
worthwhile, even if it's cheap.  Cheap useless stuff is still useless
