That isn't true. The letter "v" is a vowel in Cherokee, a consonant
in Czech, and (often) a semivowel in Danish.
Please stop talking as though you are a Unicode authority, Philippe.
You are an enthusiastic beginner. There is nothing wrong with that.
Good luck with your studies. As I said once before, if you do your
homework you could well be as valuable a participant to our work as
Doug Ewell is. But for now, your pretense at expertise just makes a
lot of people annoyed with you.
Perhaps Patrick Andries' French translation of the text of the
standard will be of assistance to you.
