Not two holograms usually, but two * hemigrams *, one of which is a
'hologram' (wen2) and other may be a 'hologram', but most likely it
will be another digraph (zi4), capable of being split into two.

Yes, quite right.
(But if someone can tell me why it matters, except in a very few cases
(like mang 5fd9 and wang 5fd8), how the hemigrams are positioned with
respect to each other, I would be eager to hear. The Chinese character
can be identified regardless of the relative positioning, can it not?
Or are we talking strictly about creating fonts?)
