8.1.109 <glyph-data> Glyph Data For a Private Character

Most characters in an XML document can be expressed as regular Unicode® codes. Characters not in the Unicode Standard tables have traditionally been expressed as explicit font calls (non-portable), created as inline graphics, or defined in one of the Unicode private-use areas where users may define their own characters. The <glyph-data> element is used when there is known to be no font available to render a private-use character. This element provides information on the actual glyph that is associated with the private-use character.
