I've found these characters in a book called "The Annals of the
Cakchiquels", by Daniel G. Brinton. They have a little history, as noted
by the tag in the picture. The tz is for a tz sound, and is probably
just a glyph variant of that character. The 4 is called a cuatrillo, the
reversed three is called the tresillo, and the 4 with a comma is
cuatrillo con coma. Are these still in use anywhere? Are they
appropriate suspects for Unicode?
-- David Starner - email@example.com Einstein once said that it would be hard to teach in a co-ed college since guys were only looking on girls and not listening to the teacher. He was objected that they would be listening to _him_ very attentively, forgetting about any girls. But such guys won't be worth teaching, replied the great man.
