    I presume you're asking about my head-start comment, rather than the
    OCR idea. I just meant that the equivalence mappings, etc., provide a
    clue that some characters are similar in appearance to others.

    To my surprise the code charts do not seem to indicate that Cyrillic
    and Latin "a" are related. There is clearly an embarrassing gap in my
    understanding here - what am I missing?
