One caution you should give to your authors -- the more esoteric the
symbol they use, the less likely other software will support it.
Currently, I don't think either MathPlayer or Mozilla or Mathematica
have italic double-struck characters.  Apparently, the STIX group didn't find
much use of them, otherwise they would have been in their proposal to
the Unicode Technical Committee.
