    DIN 31635 (1982) and ISO/R 233 (1961) use "h with breve below",
    which is the "orientalists' system".

    ISO 233 (1984) and ISO 233-2 (1993) use "h with line below".

    Sorry for the confusion.

    However, in academic usage, I find either the orientalists' system
    "h with breve below" or the Anglo-American system "kh" (with or
    without underlining *both* letters).
    This might be an explanation why there is no precomposed
    "capital H with line below".
