      Yes, that is what I mean. I assumed I would filter out code
      points with Unknown script, yes.

      Assume a character belongs to a Script that is not Unknown or
      ControlCharacter -- then is that character a printable
      character? How close is that to being a character which can
      safely be displayed?
