--- Comment #5 from Saašha Metsärantala <saa...@acc.umu.se> ---
Hello!

Today, the majority of Unicode's characters are outside the BMP. This involves
many alphabets and other character sets. Here are links to two of these non-BMP
planes:
http://www.unicode.org/roadmaps/smp/ and
http://www.unicode.org/roadmaps/sip/ and more are to come because dozens of
alphabets are not part of Unicode, yet.

Today's FOP supports no more than a minority of Unicode's characters and this
minority will become proportionally less and less in the future. I consider
that there is a need to solve this problem in the long run.

Trying to "solve" the problem for some specific non-BMP characters will lead to
this problem coming back again and again ...

I will use FOP *much* more often as soon as it supports non-BMP characters.

Regards!

Saašha,
