If one wanted to ensure that all of the characters in <c'h> were letters,
it would probably make sense to not use U+0027 APOSTROPHE ('), but rather
U+02BC MODIFIER LETTER APOSTROPHE (ʼ). It is Lm like U+30FC (ー) (which
started this thread, for those starting in the middle).
Perhaps a unicode savvy ☺ input method would automate that. Although
automatically differentiating between ʼ and ’ is a bit of a challenge....
