    Well I for one can live with that.

    It was my original contention that using directional control characters such as
    RLO and PDF were an appropriate mechanism (together with a suitable RTL Ogham
    font) for producing BTT Ogham embedded within TTB Mongolian. And since Mark
    seems to be confirming that this is indeed correct, it is the mechanism that I
    will be using on my forthcoming web page in which I prove that Ogham was
    invented by time-travelling warrior monks from Mongolia.
