BMP, U+0020 to U+FFFD, which admittedly is not _all_ Unicode) but it was
ugly (I don't remember its name). I've gone back to looking for fonts
according to what I'm displaying: Bitstream Vera Sans Mono for
alphabetic scripts, fallback on Courier New for abjads not correctly
displayed in Bitstream Vera, some CJK font for East-Asian scripts, etc.
With my current GTK2 GUI (where 'guifontset' is unknown and I leave
'guifontwide' empty), when a glyph isn't found, gvim will try to find a
glyph for the same codepoint in another font of the same size. This
sometimes leads to weird-looking glyphs (sans-serif glyphs used to
complete a serif font, a single bold glyph in a line of thin ones...)
but since it is done glyph-by-glyph, I less often have to look far and
wide for a font containing glyphs for everything in my editfile.
Nevertheless, when I edit my homepage
http://users.skynet.be/antoine.mechelynck/ where there are Latin,
Cyrillic, Arabic, hanzi/kanji glyphs and even one hiragana all on the
same page, I still change guifonts according to which part of the text I
am editing at any given time.
