I *think* I gave the UCNs for all characters I cited, if
that was of any help. I trust you have BabelMap
<http://www.babelstone.co.uk/Software/BabelMap.html>
installed if you are on Windows. Don't leave the Latin 26
without it! :-)

OK, thanks. Interesting. It explicitly says that the shaded
symbols are unofficial extensions, so there may be hope for
getting them into the phonetic extensions block. Most
importantly db and qp ligatures are already in Latin
Extended B as ȸȹ \u0238 \u0239.

Aha. I don't like the distinction between ̡ and ̢ \u0321
and \u0322, as it is dyslectic to me. It probably is to
others too, since \u0321 got withdrawn. BTW the glyphs are
swapped in Gentium, which is one reason I don't use that
font anymore -- the others are lack of boldface and weak
Cyrillic coverage. Go DejaVu! :-)

"freicative" is another interesting typo. I wonder if it's
due to r and e being next to each other on the keyboard, or
if English /I/ maps to Swedish /e/ for me?! :-)

Excellent! Hopefully we can make that notation a CXS
standard even if there come fonts that have those extra
belted characters.
