    Yes. Kai is separately encoded as a character (U+03D7) because it is sometimes used even
    in modern Greek in a manner similar to the Latin ampersand. [The Coptic equivalent is also
    separately encoded, following the fairly recent disunification of the Greek and Coptic
    scripts in Unicode.]
