FWIW, *many* T1 fonts have >256 characters.  Fedra Serif has 361.  No 
more than 256 are addressable via 'show' at a time, but you can get to 
them with glyphshow, or by reencoding the font, or by developing a 
composite font that refers to multiple differently-encoded versions of 
the T1.  I'm sure you knew this, Karl, just wanted to be precise.
