On my Win95 system there is only Windings, no version 2 or 3 are available.
So, I would suggest sticking with base Windings only mapping.
As far as the "heart" is concerned, your suggestion for the 0x96 Windings is
not supported on Win95. Characters 0x82 throught 0x8C, 0x91 throught 0x9C
and 0x9F all appear as character 0x3F.
From a short experimentation, different fonts can be used. The heart could
be 0xA9 from the Symbol font.
