    See for a
    discussion of Egyptian transliteration using Unicode though for the _i_
    with hook I think that the combination U+0069 + U+0357 (the last being a
    newly coded diacritic) is superior to the suggest U+0069 + U+0313.

    For the character that looks like _3_ I would suggest currently using
    _3_ as that is the traditional fallback used in transliterations when
    the proper character is not available.
