I was reading the propsal with the signature ISO/IEC JTC1/SC2/WG2 N3027
L2/06-027 2006-01-30 (M.Everson et al. about the encoding of medievalist characters), and a question occured in me.
"8. Combining characters. Thirteen combining superscript letters are already encoded to represent medieval Germanic manuscripts. These comprise half of the basic Latin alphabet, shown in bold type here: abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz. We propose to add seven more basic superscript letters attested in medieval manuscripts which will bring the repertoire to 20 of the 26 letters: abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz. (It should be noted that of the traditional Latin alphabet, if these ten are added, only *COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER B, *COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER F, *COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER J, *COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER P, *COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER Q, and *COMBINING SMALL LETTER W will remain unencoded.) [...]"
In scope of this, would a single example of a COMBINING SMALL LETTER W in a manuscript be enought to have it encoded? I believe to have seen it in a facsimile of one (I believe 15th century) and I might be able to dig it out...
