Does anyone have an on-line list of the ISO 10646-1 collection
numbers and ranges?
The Blocks.txt file on ftp.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA seems to be
different from the ISO collections and also does not show the
corresponding collection identifiers.
Would ISO collection identifiers be a good part of X11 XLFDs? E.g., I
could name a font "*-ISO10646-C1,5,19" to signal that this font covers
only ISO 10646 collections 1, 5, and 19.
We would this way have a nice font file namespace for fonts that contain
say only Han glyphs and have to be merged in a "font set" with other
fonts to provide a comprehensive ISO 10646-1 font. This might be a good
way to avoid storage redundancy for the non-Han glyphs in CJK fonts,
because only the Han collection would be provided in regional variants,
while the rest could come from an invariant font.
