The ids extension can dynamically composing parts with ids into a SVG and
displayed on media wiki.

I know the team implied this function in Taiwan. They are dealing a
Taiwanese dictionary contained several Hanzi not encoded into Unicode.

After some researches, there is already a Mediawiki extension named as ids
that do exactly what I asked about. ( With the only problem is that
⿻is still not yet supported by the system. Now the question is can this
extension become something integrated into a font.
