How to call of a single letter consisting of several glyphs?
I suppose Dutch IJ is similar Cyrillic letter yeru, which also evolved
from a sequence of two letters, but is now considered a single letter
wrt. spacing, crosswords etc.
The difference is that yeru is always encoded as a single unit, and
that its second part is no longer a standalone letter in Russian.
