Thanks a lot! Without even asking anything, three of my questions were
answered here at the same time.
- accessing glyphs by numbers
- proving if a glyph is available or not
- might be a good reason to ask for adding "reversed E" to Latin
Modern font (consequently they will probably add the lowercase letter
as well, which was exactly the letter I've been looking for since I
started to use LaTeX)
