That depends on the availability of Tavultesoft Keyman. The UK has been
discussing whether a certain user-perceived character should be encoded
as a single character in a new script. Users ought to have this
character on their keyboards, but there is a worry about technical
problems if it is encoded as a sequence of three characters, i.e. six
UTF-16 code units. If Windows easily supports a ligature of six UTF-16
code units, then one argument for encoding it is eliminated.
