Rather than start a new thread every time I have a question about some obscure glyphs, I figured it'd be better to create a new thread as a catch-all. Feel free to chime in with your own questions.
This isn't about whether or not certain glyphs are valid or worth bothering with. It's about knowing what they're used for some you can make a better judgment call as to whether or not including them. For example, if you're making a text font that might be used in a dictionary, you might want to include IPA
characters. If you're making a display font, you might want to leave those out.
Anyway, today, I'm fooling around with Latin Extended Additional
and I got to the 1E80-1E85 range. ẀẁẂẃẄẅ
I've been including these glyphs for about a decade simple because someone emailed me and told me that they're needed for Irish...or was it Welsh. It's been a while; I can't remember. Anyway, I looked them up today and I can't figure out who, if anyone, actually uses these. Any ideas about these accented W's?
