>>> 㑖 = 999

...     cœur = 'heart'

- Why always this magic number "four"?
- Are you able to think once non-ascii?
- Have you once had the feeling to be penalized,
because you are using fonts with OpenType technology?
- Have once had problem with pdf? I can tell you,
utf32 is peanuts compared to the used CID-font you
are using.
- Did you toy once with a unicode TeX engine?
- Did you take a look at a rendering engine code like HarfBuzz?
