           Summary: Fixes for the Unicode Decoding resource(s)
           Product: Ghostscript

There are many differences in mappings found in Ghostscript’s 
‘Resource\Decoding\Unicode’ and many missing names, compared to the current
version of the Adobe Glyph List. Also, names in the Zapf Dingbats font were
removed in revision 4030 - unintentionally I think, because the log message
only says ‘Fix : gs/Resource/Decoding/Unicode contained wrong codes for
Cyrillic and Hebrew.’ I found such problems in the context of bug #691907 ‘PDFs
with TrueType fonts from Windows PostScript files not searchable’, because in
the absence of a GlyphNames2Unicode generated by the driver, this resource is
used to construct the PDF ToUnicode CMap that is used for searching the PDF and
copying text.

I’ll attach below (comment #1) an updated version of this file.

I attach also my best attempt at updating the ‘FCO_Unicode’ resource too,
although this one is more problematic. Details in comment #2.
