I have two ideas.
Interestingly, Windows Vista's "Character Map" utility (and probably
also Windows 7's?) has similar ideas...
1. Highlight the categories, so it is easy to tell where the category starts and ends.
Vista's character map has an option to group by Unicode subrange, where
only the characters from the selected subrange are shown - as opposed to
LibreOffice's current behaviour of jumping to the first character in the
range, but giving no easy indication where the range ends. As you
suggest, highlighting the range would be similarly helpful.
2. Allow some input box so you could type some substring of the characters' names and get
all matching characters. For example, if you typed equal, all characters with equal
in the name would be listed. (I do not know if the names are i*18n or not.).
Vista's character map does pretty much exactly this. I think the
character names are defined in the Unicode standard. Not sure if they're
internationalised though. The thing that keeps catching me out with
Vista is that after searching, the "Search" button changes to "Reset" -
so to do a new search you have to first reset, then type the query
string, then search; you can't just type a new query and search for it.
