S/s followed by Combining Macron Below 0331 is fine.
But what is the reason for having T/t with line below (1E6E, 1E6F)
and not having the correspondent S/s with line below?
Most of the Latin letters from 00C0 to 1EFF (exceptions being
00C6, 00E6; 00DE, 00FE; 00DF; 0132, 0133; 0152, 0153; 0182 to
01F7; 021C, 021D) can be decomposed = are not necessary.
Since some of the letters in 1E00 to 1EFF are only used for
transliterating non-latin letters / transcribing non-latin
I do not understand why not adding the last missing letter I need.
