    Tho the wikipedia article may be unsourced, but you can read about the
    Claudian letters in Hans Jensen, Die Schrift (in german) which is a
    scholar work and rock solid.

    An interesting question occurs: The Claudian latin letters were in use and
    dissappeared before the latin alphabet became bicameral. If they become
    encoded into UNicode (and I am sure, they should do so), what about case?
