I have tried a number of things from what was suggested.
Thanks to all that came forward with responses to my plea!

I have not done them all yet...

My problem is as project editor in CEN I am to make a document
that contains all the glyphs of the Minimum European Subset
of ISO/IEC 10646 (also called MES, or ENV 1973).

So I am looking for a font that contains all of the MES.

First then I tried EversonMono, but that did not work on my computer.

I then made a HTML doc with all characters of MES.

Then I tried to display this with Netscape and Internet explorer and
alis tango. I downloaded fonts from Bitstream and tried it out
with Win95, after installing the multilingual support.

It works fine, but somewhat slow. But many glyphs of the MES are not
in the bitstream font, so I cannot really use it for my purpose.
I miss something like 300 characters out of say 1000.

This was under win95, both with netscape navigator 4.0a,
IE 4.0 (b) and alis tango (some older version).

This is an interim report. I will come back with more info
when I get it to work properly.
