      Hi Alex,

      Your Pali JavaScript is very useful.

      There's an excellent comprehensive resource on Unicode:
      with interesting method:

      ...you can use styles to specify preferred fonts (and alternatives)
      for sections of text in a particular language, by defining a class
      in a style sheet like this in the <head> of your file:

      <style type="text/css">
      .pali {font-family: CN-Times, VU Times, Thryomanes, sanvijjo,
      Code2000, Gentium, TITUS Cyberbit Basic, Arial Unicode MS, Tahoma;}

      You can then apply the style to any HTML tag in the <body>, and also
      specify a language for a section of text:

      Latin text followed by <span class="pali" lang="pli">Pali
      text</span> and more Latin text.

      Unfirtunately this Alan Wood's resource doesn't yet mention Pali
      fonts, which cover Latin Extended Additional range:
