It looks fine.
Like I say, on Firefox, I seem to be getting the
Plane 1 stuff pretty good (except for the gaps
where previously defined glyphs are omitted).

OK, but how would I use that to specify that an
<mi mathvariant="fraktur">W</mi> should use those fonts?

    @namespace mml url(http://www.w3.org/1998/Math/MathML);
    mml|mi[mathvariant="fraktur"] {
          font-family:STIXGeneral, STIXGeneral-Italic, STIXGeneral-Bold, 
STIXGeneral-BoldItalic; }

doesn't seem to do it..
(which I guess makes sense, since I'm trying to specify the
font for "W", but the STIX font for plane-1 is for an
entirely different letter MATHEMATICAL FRAKTURE CAPITAL W,
or whatever)
