    Certainly, but that's not me who suggested to unify the "i with bottom right
    as a variant of "oi/gha". In fact if you read what I read, I have exactly
    said the
    opposite, because I have always thought that "oi/gha" was a variant of "g"
    and not of "i"...

    Look at the summary of sounds with "similar" glyphs I posted early, then
    this is very clear... This summary was needed because the GIF posted by
    Peter was not found in the list (Peter just posted a plain-text description,
    but the table he created was not usable as all the column formatting was
    lost from his post...)
    Instead Peter could post a URL to his interesting Azeri alphabets which
    compares the transliteration schemes that occured in different reforms from
    Arabic to Latin then Cyrillic then agains Latin.
