I'm implementing a Korean Johab<->Unicode conversion routine for our systems,
but I don't have a copy of KS X 1001, so I've been relying on Mr Lunde's
latest blockbuster and

Neither are totally clear on the encoding of single Jamo consonants.
Johab 8841 is definitely the single letter "K" (U+3131), encoded as
K-filler-filler, and 8444 is definitely "KS" (U+3133), encoded as

But is 8442 (filler-filler-K) a valid alternative representation of "K"?

Thanks in advance,
