By the way, although not all software lets you do this,
some software, such as Yudit, let's you define a hierarchy of fonts.
When it needs a character, it looks for it in the first font you
list and if it finds it there, it uses it. If it doesn't, it moves
on to the next. So, suppose you have a real nice font for your
IPA symbols or Cyrillic or whatever it is you use a lot, but
want coverage of other things. You put your special font first, then
the more general one. That way the special font will be used
when it contains the characters you need, but if you ask for something
else, the more general font will be there as backup.
