    For XOM, I need to build up tables of which Unicode characters are
    representable in different character sets. The ISO-8859 sets are
    easy, relatively speaking. Now I'm moving into the tougher stuff like
    Big5 and the other pre-Unicode Asian character sets.

    Is there anywhere I can find or piece together a *complete* list of
    Unicode characters that are available in Big5 (and other similar
    sets)? I've looked at unihan.txt, and it has part of what I need but
    not all of it. It specifies which Unicode Han characters are
    available in which other character sets. However, most of these
    character sets include various ASCII characters, Greek letters,
    symbols, digits, and so forth. These do not appear to be listed in
