Do you have information on the WGL character set? This is the

> "We (MS and AMC) refer to this character set designation as "WGL". Back in
> the early to mid 90s, we worked with MS to define a character set that
> they wanted to call (the) "World Glyph List" Thus, WGL was born. This is
> really a misnomer in the sense that this is only a small portion of the
> world's glyphs."
