Re: FW: New version of TR29:

In re the 'ornamental' use of the apostrophe to anglicize Irish surnames, I
believe that practice to be unique to English (viz., inserting an
apostrophe where nothing is omitted, and it does not function as a
punctuation mark).

Am I wrong, or is what I call the English practice actually unique to
English, and has anyone proposed a separate encoding of it,:-) or is it
enough to just adapt Marco's TR29 proposal in the direction I suggested to
accommodate it?
