    No, right now there isn't, and I'm not willing to place any bets on the
    possibility, let alone schedule, for one to turn up. There are some, still
    rather haphazard efforts to define the letters in modern use, especially in
    names. Thus, the best formally defined choice now is MES-2 (which, to my
    recollection, includes WGL4). It isn't very good at defining punctuation
    marks and symbols (some of those defined are practically never used, while
    many are missing).

    So, what character repertoire would you recommend to an enterprising
    prospective developer of a pan-European font? Is there any formally defined
    pan-European Unicode subset, that could be deemed perfect, and up-to-date?
