Mucking around with extended non-unicode font

As most people are aware by now, I have a penchant
for mucking around with fonts:

So, digging around, I came across Apple's in-built DevanagariMT
truetype font which:

1. Is an extended truetype font with 749 characters.

2. of which only those up to 368 have unicode addresses.

They all have decimal addresses.

Does anybody have any bright ideas how to call those
chars above the initial 255?



on mouseUp
    put numToChar(600) into fld "fSCREEVE"
end mouseUp

gave me no joy at all.


sincerely, Richmond Mathewson.
