    In Dutch names starting with ij are written IJ and not Ij. Say a city like
    Capelle aan den IJssel, or a name like IJzersmid, et cetera.
    Not sure if this also causes problems for what you are dissecting.

    Realistically we should be using the special glyph, but almost everyone I know
    doesn't even realise we have a specialised glyph for this.
