    I tried UTF-8 export to send an e-mail that contained
    several scattered unicode codepoints from the full
    16-bit range from oooo to ffff from XP+Word to the
    university's Linux/Mozilla/OpenOffice/Kmail, enabled
    UTF-8 support. With very disappointing results.

    1. Do I expect too much assuming that UTF-8 just
    recodes the full 16-range in 8-bit but that
    text-programs with UTF-8 enabled should be able to
    reconstruct the full 16-bit range (as far as used)?

    2. Linux is able to install MS-character sets:
    Can you tell me what parameters I ave to provide for
    the Arial Unicode MS font
    xset asks for a font.dir with parameters like:
    bwhebb.ttf panose-1:2 2 6 3 5 4 5 2 3 4;
            mso-font-signature:3 0 0 0 1 0;
