Thanks for replying -- but the fact that I used Code2001 both as the 
TeXworks editor font and to make the PDF shows that Code2001 does have 
the characters in question (since they are visible in the PDF; also, I 
work regularly with historic scripts and Code2001 is a font that is well 
known for its support of Plane 1 characters).  I have also tried a 
couple of other fonts that I know for certain have the characters, with 
the same result.

The fact that you are on a Mac is interesting; as I said in a previous 
posting, I use MiKteX on Windows, so perhaps the problem with the 
version of TeXworks that is supplied by MikTeX.  (It's not a generic 
Windows problem since other software displays and prints Plane 1 
characters correctly).  Can any Windows but non-MikTeX users tell me 
what you see?
