The penny just dropped about the names of the Unicode characters; they are the Adobe Glyph List and the Zapf Dingbats Glyph List names of a subset of Unicode characters.
Won't we at some stage need to generalise support for a wider set of glyphs? Or is that entirely a matter for user-defined fonts? Looks as though I'll have to look at user fonts.

I would like ti use the Unicode Character Database as a source for names of characters. At the moment, ...fonts.Glyphs contains a static table of String pairs containing the Unicode character and its name, respectively.
