    Very few people work in bases higher than 16, but occasionally I've seen
    people do so and use G-Z for things like that. I did it myself, in a
    library for my HP-48G calculator for higher bases. And then after Z it
    goes to lowercase a-z, I think. This is not necessarily a Good Idea.

    Given that A-F is pretty well-known, G-Z is likely to be understood. In
    Latin, of course, even as A-F are in Latin.

    At any rate, this isn't a Unicode topic.
