Hi Caroline - these were just my personal notes about what I had to do, on top of what you'd already written and what was in the minutes. Duly noted re. the ranges.

Thanks. I take it that these are to supplement what I put in my two e-mails, which are already in the log.
On the third point, I was not actually suggesting combining the ranges into one range, but concatenating (with line-breaks) the contents of the left and center columns to avoid the multiple repetition.
i.e. for a single row to look something like
Latin Extended-A U+0100-U+017F hAnsi, with the following exception:
Latin Extended-B U+0180-U+024F * If hint is eastAsia, and the language of the run is either Chinese
IPA Extensions U+0250-U+02AF Traditional (BCP47) or Chinese Simplified, or the character set of
the eastAsia (or eastAsiaTheme, if defined) font is Chinese5 or
GB2312 then eastAsia font is used.
You don't seem to have mentioned any of the substance Murata-san told us to expect in the forthcoming lengthy comment from Japan. But its expected existence is mentioned in the minutes.
This appears to cover things until we get details from Suzuki-san.

I agreed during the call to send my notes of our discussion concerning this DR.
Caroline thinks that the term "ascii theme", which appears in the proposed resolution, is somehow related to the issue of using ASCII in the high number range.
In DrawingML there is a very useful introductory piece that mentions font slots in general - it would be nice to find a similar place in WML to do this too (it may not be in the section we made all the changes in).
In the table there is exact repetition in several contiguous rows of the classification - Caroline would like to make these into ranges, instead of repeating the text.
