The font definition I posted has Cherokee glyphs, but I have to fake bold,

As my text is very mixed, I have it set to use only these fonts for the
entire document. I would rather use the default fonts for the English parts
of the text as the fonts that contain the Cherokee glyphs are incomplete (no
smalluppercase, no proper italics, etc). There was one package I tried that
was supposed to allow switching between fonts based on unicode range, game
me results that were less than pleasing. Whatever font state which was in
effect before a switch is not restored. You have to specify a specific
switch back, not something that is very friendly. (fontspec says you should
encap font changes in {} blocks so that at the end of the block the previous
font settings are "restored", but the only package I could find that let me
specify fonts via unicode range does not follow that paradigm)
