The ISO and DIN transliteration of Arabic U+062E is U+1E2B
"h with breve below", which has an upper-case form U+1E2A.
U+1E96 occurs in Anglo-American transliterations - but only in
combinations like "kh with line below", which has the upper-case
form "Kh with line below". Therefore no "capital H with line below".
