That's funny; one of the contractions I could identify (attached
kai.png) I though was the kai symbol (mostly since there's a codepoint
for it, so I've got several glyphs to go by), so I didn't ask about
it. But are you saying this tau-c looking glyph is another symbol for
kai? or are they two different kais (like, two meanings or two tones)?
