    I agree. What is meant by "proprietary" fonts? There are certain Unicode
    ranges that are in any case currently only available via expensive
    proprietary fonts or fonts that may only work correctly on a particular OS.
    UTF-8 pages using PUA codepoints validate at W3C just as well as pages of
    NCR's with 8-bit charsets (which still seem dubious to me.)
