    Thank you, Mark. These new charts look a lot better e.g. for Greek,
    except for continued confusion at 03DE which seems to be a Mozilla 1.6
    bug (still picking up the incorrect glyph from Arial Unicode MS although
    I have specified another font for Greek).

    It does look very odd that 1D28 has been separated from the other pi's,
    1D29 from the other rho's etc. Is there a good reason for that? I know
    everyone hates the UPA (except for Uralicists presumably), but these
    letters are still clearly variants of pi and rho. The same applies to
    the Latin small caps of course - why are they collated separately at the
    first level when all other font variants are not?
