disunified, even if the range of acceptable glyph shapes (including
positioning and advance width) is essentially coextensive (O in Latin,
Cyrillic, Greek). Punctuation, symbols, and marks are generally unified if
the range of acceptable glyph shapes is essentially coextensive ("?" in
Latin, Cyrillic, Greek, others).
However, there are not hard-and-fast rules, because many factors come into
