>They are *glyphs*, not characters.
OK, let me rephrase the question and clarify where my mind was
I want to be able to create charts for use in our font
development. At times, I'll want to display a glyph which is an
over-striking diacritic; at times, I'll want to prepare a name
list with glyphs shown, and I'll need to indicate that certain
codepoints are undefined/reserved. So, I'm thinking that I'll
create a font that contains the two glyphs in question. For
convenience, I might even include these glyphs in the actual
fonts that we plan to deliver to our users. That leads,
however, to the question of how from the cmap those glyphs
should be mapped.
From your response, Ken, I can think of three possible
1. The two glyphs in question are acceptable representations
for U+25CC and U+25A7, so I could chose to use those
2. There are not characters defined for the entities I'm
looking for, and I should use two PUA codepoints.
3. These glyphs should be treated as symbols; therefore, they
should only be included in a symbol font.
Which of these seems best, or is there a better alternative
conclusion that I haven't thought of?
