The symbol used to designate truncated text in ui has no valid equivalent in the ubiquitous Verdana. This wouldn't be so much of a problem if it wasn't the best hinted font available in this universe. I like my interface clean, un-anti-aliased and hinted and that is only possible using Verdana. It would be nice if this character could be replaced by … (ellipsis U+2026 aka UTF-8:0xE2 0x80 0xA6 or UTF-16:0x2026). See attached images for clarification of the problem and example of perfect hinting in Verdana, lacking the ellipsis.
