When updating Postscript Type 1 fonts to Unicode (Adobe fonts only, of course), I frequently have to come up with the Unicode index for a character. For example, we may have a character named “Vcaron” in our Type 1 font. If Vcaron is already a precomposed Unicode character, I need the number. If not, I just add it to the ccmp feature.
What I need is a cheap (free would be nice) tool that lets one enter individual characters & then tells you if a precomposed character exists (in 4.1.0). SC Unipad does this, but it is pretty pricey for just this feature.
