IIRC; MES 2 has not succeeded in becoming a standard, or otherwise
being widely recognized. Does anybody know more details?
Another, widely used, collection of pan-European characters is WGL4
<http://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/WGL4.htm>. Though not
an international standard, either, it has been established as a
quasi standard, as WGL4 capable fonts are included with every
Windows system sold in Europe.
