It seems to me that modern software is perfectly able to "cope" with the
PUA. Using OS X I can read and write email and web pages in Cirth,
Tengwar, and Klingon perfectly well. The problems mentioned earlier in
this thread disappear if one uses correct html/css for websites and uses
html mail rather than plain text with the Mozilla mail client, which
otherwise won't let you choose the font for incoming mail.
