This seems like too much work to go through. Just pick up the latest
copy of UnicodeData.txt:
Load the whole shebang into WordPad (or whatever), then search for WITH
MACRON or WITH ACUTE.
Or, you could use a search tool like "find" (shipped with all
Windows/DOS systems) or the more powerful "grep" to search
These solutions are not only easier, but more powerful, and keep you
from missing some characters because you didn't think to look in that
particular PDF file. (Did you find Y WITH MACRON in the U+0200 block?)
