the more canonical form of this letter has a zig-zag rather than a simple strokeAndré — I’m not sure why you refer to the zig-zag form as canonical. That form is no longer used as an exemplar in Unicode, and I believe it is rejected by most modern Icelanders. Gunnlauger SE Briem disparages that form on his page about the design of Icelandic thorn and eth. (Scroll down to the section labeled “Swastica crossbar”.)

The crossbar of Ð should match the height and style of crossbar of the E.

Personally I find it quite odd that there is no single clear source (FAFAIK) on extended latin, […] If everyone does their own research, we're wasting valuable time and effort, […]
Ray Larabie said:Portuguese and French readers have different cedilla preferences? People have stated this on type forums. I don't personally believe it as I've only heard this concept from non Portuguese sources and every Portuguese reader I've asked doesn't care one way or another. But I've only asked Brazilians about it. If there is a preference, is it a reader's preference or a type designer's preference?Some cultures prefer or can't read a particular form of Ŋ? I think this might be and outdated idea because those readers have likely been exposed to decades of Windows core fonts containing both forms and I've seen web pages and signage in both cultures using either form. Seems like a myth and if it's not, will it still be true in a decade?
