    If so, I would like to know if somebody already submitted a
    request for combining titlos (superscript letters with titlo,
    mentioned also by Michael Fayez in his recent message).
    Absence of these characters is the main reason why Unicode still
    cannot be used for Church Slavonic texts, so that all interested
    people have to use various custom 8-bit encodings.

    I think it would be much better if this document was available
    somethere at, so that interested people could discuss
    it or at least know that somebody in Unicode is really occupied with
    the corresponding problems. If I had never seen this file, I would have
    an impression that historicall Cyrillic is totally ignored.
