Thank you for your reply. Nicely! Those code points each have a helpful mnemonic.

I had not known of Cadfan ap Iago until I read your post.

I found the following.


I opine that we need to make it clear, for the benefit of some people new to Unicode who may be reading this thread, that those code points are in one of the Private Use Areas, namely Supplementary Private Use Area-B, so there could be problems using them in some circumstances due to lack of uniqueness in the use of those code points.
