Sorry, this paragraph confused me a bit (as I just answered you a
couple of minutes before your post):

Note from the above excerpt that /CMapType is set to 2 in "ToUnicode"
mapping files.
Because a "ToUnicode" mapping file is used to convert from CIDs (which
begin at decimal 0, which is expressed as 0x0000 in hexadecimal
notation) to Unicode code points, the following "codespacerange"
definition, without exception, shall always be used:

1 begincodespacerange
<0000> <FFFF>

I have to look closer as well before stating my next stupidity. (I
don't know if CMapType 1 or 2 should better be used or if the range
should be from 0000 FFFF only for Eastern languages where the number
of glyphs certainly exceeds 256 ;) Sorry again.
