    Understood. It seems that Uniscribe currently (though possibly
    accidentally) supports the recommended Unicode 4.0 treatment of CGJ as a
    default ignorable character. It would be perverse of Microsoft, which is
    aware of the issue, to alter this behaviour of Uniscribe to make it less
    conformant to Unicode 4.0.

    Paul, I trust you have been following the many postings to the Unicode
    list on this subject today. You may not have seen the closing comment of
    my last posting, which John quoted in part:

    And where, for that matter, is the "host of people [who] will fight that
    proposal"? I hope they will now realise that the ogre they are fighting
    is in fact, if not a handsome prince, at least quite harmless.
