Or simply assign code points to the few Serbian letters and call them (for
example) "Small
Serbian [Italic] Cyrillic T". For Non-Italic Fonts, this CodePoint maps to
the same glyph as "Small Cyrillic T". For Italic ones, it will map to the
Serbian Glyph (if in the font) or otherwise the Russian Glyph. There is no
NEED for seperate Serbian Fonts - only Cyrillic Fonts with the needed
Glyphs and Codepoints.
