    >> Unicode is meant for the printed text, is it not ?

    As John Hudson and Christopher Fynn point out, I should not have put it that

    >>So generally speaking there is no reason to encode any Greek ligatures or
    tachygraphical forms, since ligation is a display issue not a plain text
    encoding issue.

    On the other hand Unicode seems set to include many glyphs found in papyri
    (including the Greek zero that I proposed two years ago), which are not
    recognized as ligatures, just symbols of one sort or another.
