    The 'summary' at is
    not completely covered by the text at>. There's a lot of
    highlighting, so I think the definition is experimental. Pointing out that
    CGJ should be added to several auxiliary sets was not welcomed.

    I must admit I can't see a good example use. For the choice of encoding,
    there is actually the mapping element, though I haven't found any examples
    of it yet. Mind you, for languages without spaces, I suspect Unicode is the
    only encoding covering all these characters! I thought I saw mention of
    keyboard mapping somewhere, but I couldn't find it at either of these
