    Well, I cannot say that there will be no further development of Arial
    Unicode MS. However, both Microsoft and Monotype (last I spoke to them)
    are not heavily pursuing the development of pan-unicode fonts because
    there are several reasons why they are *not* a "beautiful idea". Some
    reasons were mentioned in a post on this list just a few days ago (I
    forget now from whom).
