I think this comment does not mean much, just a hint that some glyphs  
or effects might be missing, because the TS1 encoding depends on the  
glyphs in the font(s) used. The TS1 or TEX TEXT COMPANION SYMBOLS 1  
encoding consists of 128 slots or code points. A few of the glyphs  
are real strange (capital* glyph names), others address old style  
digits, symbols for genealogy, fractions, or a copyleft symbol. It is  
certain that no font has all these glyphs defined. Depending on the  
font used the TS1 encoding can actually contain 100 glyphs or just  
one or two dozens. (And there is another problem: the glyph names in  
the font used have to be the same as in the encoding vector in order  
to be found. If the names differ they're not found and therefore  
don't get printed.)
