Back in the bad-old days, I could specify one of
Wolfram's Mathematica fonts for fraktur, but
I haven't been able to figure out how to specify
the fraktur portion of STIX in css (or Cambria,
for that matter).
Do you (or anyone else) know how to spec that?

Yes, they _ought_ to be able to support the mathvariants
now, but it is interesting that all(?) the plane-1
stuff seems to work out of the box...
The only problem is that approach wont work in other browsers.
