code2000.ttf is even more impressive when one remembers it is produced
by James Kass working on his own. Both code2000 and code2001 offer
For plane 2 many people use HannomB.ttf, which is adequate for now (
but not after Extension C comes on line).
The 65536 limit for TTF fonts is not as big a problem as it sounds -
since even text editors in general now allow for sevearl fonts to be
treated as if they are one font. This is often done a OS level - eg
fallback fonts for Windows, fontconfig for Linux. Therefore inpratice
one can easily go over the 65536 mark.
