    I knew that I had a problem with some fonts (e.g. Ethiopic, Yi) that didn't
    use the PUA getting treated like they were Asian (e.g. advance widths wrong
    and monowidth), and that this was fixed in Word2002. I hadn't had a chance
    to look at the EUDC effects on PUA (having just learned about it), but if
    you have based the effects on the font (given it's reasonably obvious
    whether a font supports CJK or not), then that probably accomplishes what
    I'd need.
