We also have people interested in Cipher music notation.
I was given to understand that:
Basically, if we set aside slurs and a few special characters <snip>, the
core of what we need are just
some diacritics to attach to the numbers 1 through 9:
- double overline
- forward-slash strike-through
- backslash strike-through
Charis SIL/Doulos SIL have all of those with the exception of the
backslash strike-through. I believe that will be in the next version of
our fonts (but U+20E5 is a combining mark for symbols, rather than in the
regular combining mark block, is that a problem?). However, there is the
issue of "strike-through characters". We haven't given the strike-through
characters any smart fonts so no smart attachment takes place. That would
be a problem.
Of course, maybe none of these are issues for Cipher notation in China.
These were requested for another country that uses it.
