The character sets included in some fonts, especially Times New Roman and the other historical core Windows fonts (Arial and Courier New) has grown over the years. TNR, Arial, and Courier New are all now very complete for biblical studies (Polytonic Greek, Hebrew, Arabic, diacritical marks, etc.) , but that has not always been the case. It is helpful to know which version of the font one has in mind when saying which characters it includes.
I have Times New Roman from Windows 7 and Office 2010, which is version 5.07, copyright 2010. My Tahoma is version 5.06, from 2008. My Trebuchet MS is version 5.00, from 2006.
