So this work must be done by independant open-sourcers sharing their
experience to allow fonts to be created that are completely compatible
with MES-2. (Here this is my opinion: I think it's stupid to create fonts
that are containing strictly, only but completely the MES-2 set, which
must only be viewed as a minimum set).
I note that Microsoft core fonts for Windows are supporting MES-2, but
in a unrestricted way: other characters are also included, and UniScribe
allows selecting ligatures and rendering combining sequences with
composite glyphs if defined in OpenType fonts, or with a default multi-
I note that you "prefer the European Multilingual Subset" to MES-2.
Is it an extended set that includes MES-2, and fills the holes by
using all characters defined in blocks of some version of the Unicode
