Re: curly-tailed phonetic letters

This table has undergone some further revision:

Please note in the center of the table:

U+0291/U+0293 and U+0255/U+0286

These 4 may in fact be 2 pairs of functional equivalents (synographs),
pointing to the same place of articulation. According to Pullum &
Ladusaw (1996), IPA approval of U+0286 and U+0293 was withdrawn in 1989.

Please note that also in the above table are symbols for the 2 pairs of
so-called "apical" vowels. These include U+0285 and U+027F (the
unrounded apicals, relatively front and back, respectively), as well as
their rounded counterparts. These are all 4 non-IPA-sanctioned symbols.
