    I'm working on a program to convert the visual encoding used by the
    Innwa font (and others) into Unicode.

    1. One glyph provided in these fonts (at position 0x40) looks like
    U+100F with a rotated and subscripted U+100D. Is U+100F U+1039 U+100D
    the proper sequence to produce this glyph?

    2. Old versions of the Win-Innwa font contain precomposed glyphs for the
    fractions 1/2, 4/5, 1/4, 3/4, 1/3, 2/3, 2/5, 1/5. None of the more
    recent fonts using the same encoding have these glyphs. Does anyone know
    if these fraction glyphs are actually used?
