I started this thing about DIGIT SEVEN WITH STROKE
to poke fun at the number of times glyphs appear
to be duplicated with slight variations. But now
it appears to have taken a turn to something else:
1) Sometimes short-ranging figures and long-ranging
figures (I can never remember which is which; are
short-ranging the "capital" digits?) are mixed in
a document. This is a formatting issue, right?
2) Has Unicode code-points for bold, italic, etc.?
text? Sometimes that is important to the meaning
of a text.
