And David provided a facsimile showing also a combining up tack below
(not just above). Why isn't it in his proposal ? Aren't there also
other combining tacks in other directions (left, right, bottom) ?
I've seen some publications using other combining diacritics on top of
other normal text as if it was an interlinear annotation, notably
combining square corners, up or down, left or right, above or below,
possibly shown in isolation combined with a space to show on the left
or right of some text, and acting sometimes like special grouping
parentheses (when they are in isolation or on the left or right side
of a letter, they may look like normal corners in superscript or
subscript, but when they are inserted above or below letters or
clusters, this is no longer true).
Unicode already contains such combining elements that could have been
encoded as intelinear annotations, and were not. For example
cantillation marks in Hebrew or Old Greek.
