Well, last I checked the schools still teach to write ij as ĳ and not as two
Could be that 'they' (whoever they may be) state that to accommodate the
multitude of US English keyboards present in the Netherlands you have to use
i and j and that ĳ is a compatibility character. I have no clue about that.
That would mean what is used and what is taught are quite distinct.
