Dcroat

Can someone enlighten me please, why is Dcroat glyph always on "00D0" unicode index nr. and not "0110" like unicode standard defines it...(http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0180.pdf)

U+00D0 is the codepoint for the capital Eth, which usually looks just like the capital Dcroat, U+0110 (though the lowercase forms are quite different). In a font which encodes the same glyph to multiple codepoints, a single glyph, with either name, might be mapped to both codepoints.

In Adobe's fonts, we avoid encoding the same glyph to multiple codepoints, just to deal with the uncommon situations where one has glyphs but not the original text. However, this is not an absolute necessity in font development.
