While that is true, there is a connection, both for Hungarian
Hungarian has letters like e (of course) and é (e-acute), and
o and ó (o-acute), but also ö (o-diaeresis) and o (o-double acute).
The latter is kind of an ö-acute (o-diaeresis-acute), but instead
of putting two diacritics on top of the o, the diaeresis dots are
lengthened into two acutes.
For Dutch, ÿ (y-diaeresis) can be used instead of ij. If
acute-accented, a y-double acute would be a reasonable way of
writing it (as for Hungarian). So <ij-ligature, double acute>
seems also to be a reasonable way of acute-accenting an
So the lowercase ij-ligature should have the Soft_Dotted
property (as should all the math styled lowercase i's and j's
in plane 1). (Ken: please "salt away safely" for 4.1 ;-)
