I just got through studying a couple of pages by Michael Everson (the ones concerning the old thorn and yogh letters). And I discovered in Old Norse (and pre-modern Icelandic) not only the complex vowels æ (ae ligature), ø (o-slash), and å (a-ring), but an 'o' with an ogonek (reversed cedilla), which in Polish (and Old Lithuanian) to mark nasal vowels. So what exactly is the value of Old Norse/Icelandic O-ogonek? Also, Unicode has within the Latin Extended B block (some very exotic Latin modifications are used; they can be found in the Lucida Sans Unicode every Windows 95/NT 4.0/98/2000 user should have. But the newest form of Times New Roman, Arial, Courier, and definitely other popular fonts have the three aforementioned modern Danish vowels, æ ø å (is that the correct order?), with acute accents. Is that used to mark a high tone or a stress accent? Or does the acute accent mark a long vowel, like Czech and Hungarian? Kudos for your help, Daniel A.
