Re: character range on lower case script alphabet

CharacterRange gives a set of characters with sequential character 
codes, but the script characters are not sequential:

In[]:=ToCharacterCode["\[ScriptD]"]
Out[]= {63157}

In[]:=ToCharacterCode["\[ScriptE]"]
Out[]={8495}

Why, I'm not sure. But it might be that some of these characters have 
special reserved places in Unicode, or something  like that.
