For testing things like text-justify, it would also be useful to have 
one ideographic character, one hiragana and one katakana character, one 
korean syllabic character, one korean jamo, one mongolian consonant, and 
one thai consonant character.

For things that use grapheme clusters, it would be good to have one 
latin combining character (such as e-acute), and one of each of the 
following devanagari characters:
one consonant
one virama
one vowel sign
each of the following combining characters, nukta, anusvara, 
candrabindu, visarga
(all rendered as the standard square, spacing glyphs)
