    any language currently not supported by OTF

      Thanks to Thomas for his reply to my earlier questions.

      As of known today, is there any language not supported by OTF? I know the key issue is whether that language supports Unicode format. Can someone share some insight on this topic?

      Any input is appreciated.

          The key issue is really whether Unicode supports the language, rather than vice versa.

          There are languages that aren't in Unicode (yet), but they are generally relatively obscure dead languages.

          Also, keep in mind that Unicode continues to expand, so if there were some language unsupported today, it might be supported in a future version of Unicode.

          As OpenType allows encoding of any Unicode codepoint, even ones that are not yet assigned, it should be able to handle even future versions of Unicode.
