not the whole wheel but you may be able to borrow a few spokes from the
xml file and stylesheets in


unicode.xml has some xml with the unicode block ranges, which
characters.xsl uses to make table headings in tables such as


rather than use lots of xsl:choose coding you can just take firs 5  hex
value of the character code, ten just pick up the last block with a
start value (lexicographically) less than that in a sequence pulled from
this fragent of unicode.xml

      <block start="00000" end="0007F" name="C0 Controls and Basic Latin"/>
      <block start="00080" end="000FF" name="C1 Controls and Latin-1 Supplement"/>
      <block start="00100" end="0017F" name="Latin Extended-A"/>
      <block start="00180" end="0024F" name="Latin Extended-B"/>
      <block start="00250" end="002AF" name="IPA Extensions"/>

characters.xsl has variious utility functions for getting to and from
hex strings
