"As for the GB ligature, that might actually get encoded if you can provide

That will not be a problem, because I still think things must be properly
done, language must be properly written, even where people have to combine,
the combination must be right. Just imagine how ugly a human image will look
with the nose where the ear is suppose to me and the ear on the chin.:-)

These are GH KH KP RH MW VB all these must be as close together as the ∆ so
that people will know when one is talking about VB - Visual Basic of writing
a pure Edo language or Yorub language.
