    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
    <>. 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.
