Thanks for the prompt reply.

That's good to know--Word is a very important app.

I read something from Adobe a while back (details escape me, although I
might be able to find the stuff) that suggested their PUA characters were
towards the top of the range--F200 or somewhere up there. So I began at
the beginning (E000) and I guess I will just leave the characters there
unless someone else knows of a good reason to move them.

Terrific! I encountered Keyman a couple of years ago and suggested it as
one way for users to enter the characters in the 256-character font that
preceded the current project. A Unicode version might be just what we
need, so I will go visit their website.

Thanks again -- David
