I think FUNICODE is not good name, because others
use it for other things.

I sympathize there are so many people disgusted with
the endless manipulation of the font menu in the word
processors, until obtain the expected results that
they see in web browsers, but...
I think Unicode is one of the character coding system
and Unicode consortium is not a company making the
application to produce the content for the internet,
so I think you asked your request to inappropriate

Currently, the remarkable proportion of the web contents
are using XML and their font features are managed by
CSS. Although there are many issues about the exact font
identification (e.g. Arial version 2.00 for Microsoft
Windows 95 can substitute Arial version 1.00 for Microsoft
Windows 3.1?), it provides the font info to the users,
as far as the content producer gives. Also, the printing-
oriented non-XML data formats like PostScript, PDF and
PCL can include embedded fonts.

So I recommend you to contact the developers of your
favorite applications and ask them what is missing, what
is expected to implement copy & paste the font information.
If they find any obstacles in current Unicode specification,
the experts will consider how to improve the issue.
