Sorry for not remembering the outcome of previous discussions on this...

The character set used by APL programming language includes special forms
of the uppercase Latin letters A-Z, usually italized and/or underlined.

In an APL program, one might also need to include regular uppercase Latin
letters A-Z, e.g. in character strings.

I don't remember APL well enough to recall whether this is an important
distinction or simply a matter of style. If it's a significant distinction,
what the Unicode position on how to maintain it in a APL program written
in Unicode 3.0? If the answer is that there is no distinction, will this
change because of STIX?
