    I don't believe that. I'm seeing Latin Extended C on Alanwood's page
    just fine, and it would be trivial to ask people who want to see those
    characters to add one of several that support it. How many characters
    that would have been encoded in Unicode 5.0 if it hadn't been for that
    rule have several fonts that well-support them?
