As I mentioned in another message, ATSUI can handle almost all of Unicode
except for a few minor features. In particular, it handles combining
characters, bidirectional, Indic rearrangement, Korean jamos, and so on.
It can even handle surrogates. The only requirement is that you have the
correct information in the font to describe the character to glyph
