Trivia: Microsoft Wingding Controversy

In the Wingding Controversy, if you type out "NYC" in Microsoft's wingding font, a skull and bones, Star
of David, and a thumbs up glyphs appear.

Some people interpret this as an approving message of killing jews in New York City. Microsoft strongly denied that this was intentional. The company did, however, intentionally arrange the glyphs of an eye, a heart, and a city skyline as the "NYC" sequence in the later-released
webding font.
