    I have a pretty obscure question about Unicode and how it is used to render
    characters when printed.

    Can you tell me how a character such as an 'i' has space within it and
    around it but also joins the dot within the 'i' . Is this part of the
    encoding and how is it created within each character? Is there a piece of
    code within Unicode that tells an application where not to print?

    What I am after is to see if there is the ability to be able to tell an
    application to behave in a certain manner when it hits the space within or
    around a character and before it hits the next character.

    From this you can tell I am neither a software developer or Unicode expert
    so responses in words of one or two syllables please :-)

    Hopes this makes sense
