Unicode 4.1 Scripts

Unicode 4.1, released in the Spring of 2005, included 8 new scripts. Here is the current status of their usability on the Mac as far as I know. Where there is a font but no keyboards, characters can of course still be entered directly using the Character Palette. But it seems like we should have more keyboards by now.
