That's interesting. So, for FW purists, the text ought to have this
mirrored F as well ... does Barger use it in print? If so, there's
the attested usage one needs for a proposal ...
Anyway, the list of links I sent in the earlier message needs to be
gone through, to check which contain signs (a couple don't), which
signs are not encoded, which are in the pipeline, and which might be
put into the pipeline ...
I think most would agree that FW is important enough in English
literature that there's a very good argument for encoding any of its
missing characters ...
