The rule Emacs currently has for choosing a font for Unicode
Plane 1 is to find a font supporting a scpecifc script.  For
instance, U+1D400 belongs to `mathematical' script, so Emacs
searches fonts supporting that script. And, xft font-backend
uses `script-representative-chars' to do such searching.  Ad
the representative charcters of `mathematical' is U+1D400,
xft font-backend searches fonts that support U+1D400.

How does the font-backend for Windows searches fonts for a
specific script?
