This adds /ToUnicode  resources for T1-encoded fonts.
Then you can cut/paste successfully, getting the correct
Unicode code-points for accented letters, etc.

For mathematics, it's a bit harder.

   (i) There are very few (if any) fonts that support
       the allocated Unicode points for math symbols
       and characters --- even if there were, there are
       no input-methods that use these constructively.

  (ii) Mostly ordinary letters are used, but set in
       different type-faces to provide the meaning.
       Copy/paste can give the letters, but not the
       type-face or the meaning.

Hope this helps,
