comment Detect if all required glyphs are available
@egreg: It seems that I can only reliably parse the log file after XeTeX has terminated. Remember that I intend to keep XeTeX open and feed it via its stdin. See github.com/yihui/tikzDevice/issues/5 for some more detail, I'd be glad for any input.

@egreg: No, I didn't; but the input can be arbitrary LaTeX code...

comment Detect if all required glyphs are available
@egreg: Thanks. Can XeTeX be told to treat this condition as an error, so that the process would abort when -halt-on-error is given on the command line?

comment Command to flush log file
@egreg: I need to detect missing characters from fonts: tex.stackexchange.com/q/165665/8057. Currently, this is done by looking a the log file.

comment Command to flush log file
@egreg: That's too bad. Can I at least read the log file from within LaTeX, and perhaps copy it to somewhere else? Or perhaps close/reopen the log file? I know I can \typeout to overflow the buffer so that it's emptied eventually, but that's not exactly elegant...

comment Redefine output for a specific TS1 code point (=glyph?)
Thank you so much for taking the time to derive the necessary steps and to explain them. It will help me and others in similar situations, and sheds some light on the internals of tex4ht. I do hope this can be applied to upstream tex4ht -- for my one-shot project, patching siunitx has turned out to be faster than patching three of tex4ht's files.
