Yes and no.  I can manipulate the existing fonts (especially BDF fonts)
and change their encoding.  But even if I am to create new fonts, it is
not possible to number some glyphs using unicode characters, because
they represent characte sequences rather than single chacarters. That is
why I am trying to figure out this mapping business.

Thanks for all the replies.
