I have found that some of the pdf files for the Unicode code charts allow me
to copy the name of the character onto the clipboard and then paste it into
a WordPad document and some of the pdf files do not.
For example, I have today been making a list of vowels with macrons and then
a list of vowels with acutes. This is because of producing a documentation
file about using a font to set Old English.
The pdf with the macrons allowed me to copy and paste. The pdf file with
most of the acutes did not.
I wonder if, unless it is for some policy reason and copying to the
clipboard is deliberately inhibited, if the management could possibly ensure
that all of the pdf files have the copying facility available when the
Unicode 4.0 pdf files are released please as that would be more convenient
when trying to copy the formal names of characters into documentation.
