Right, and those variables I mentioned also tell me these symbols. However,
my problem is, even with this list of symbols, I have no idea
which one I should use. I know `han' is for CJK, and I can guess `tamil' is for tamil. But some of them are difficult to guess. For example, which characters
does `cjk-misc' represent? How is it distinct from `han'?
Moreover, sometimes I get characters fail to display, but don't know which script
I should use. I would expand this for your another reply.
As for Tamil script (which I use) I have the following in my .emacs.
"Lohit Tamil" is the font to use for 'tamil script.
