    Users should always enter æ using the dedicated Unicode character.
    Display systems should always implement the choices of the font
    designer, however inappropriate those choices may be.

    I use "a + <zwj> + e" only for illustrative and testing purposes.
    I do *not* recommend that anyone introduce alternate "spellings"
    into a language which already has way too many of them. I am
    sorry if I called "a + ZWJ + e" an alternate spelling.

    Best regards,
