could anyone tell me what are the codepoints for "?..", "!..", "!!!",
and "???"? I can't find them in the charts and since things like "!!",
"??", "?!", "!?" are encoded I expected those punctuation symbols to
be present as well.
Using U+003f, U+2025 and U+0021, U+2025 sequences (EXCLAMATION MARK,
TWO DOT LEADER and QUESTION MARK, TWO DOT LEADER) along with triple
exclamation or question marks seems to be excessive.
Further, chapter 6.2 of the 4.0 book states:
These doubled punctuation marks are included as an
implementation convenience for East Asian and Mongolian text,
which is rendered vertically.
Even if they are for implementation convenience only, what is the
rationale of the exclusion of the mentioned four characters (character
sequences) from the Unicode?
