    I am busy writing a piece of mathematical software in Java. My biggest problem was displaying my mathematical text in the appropriate ways. Unicode seems the perfect solution for my needs, however, I have 2 problems:
    1. There are a few symbols that the unicode does not provide. I see that there is a Private Area - can I use this to create a few symbols of my own, and, if so, how do I do this. I can't find any help on this topic.
    2. Only the first 200 or so Unicode symbols are displayed when I run my application, if I for example ask to display String s = ("\u2070"), then a square is returned. Why is this the case?
    If anyone could be of any help I would be extremely thankful.
