Re: Mende Kikakui Number 10

Ok looking at issue again I guess the other alternative is to have a
discontiguous set of numbers. Represent 10 as U+1E8C7 U+1E8D1 and map it
within the font to the PU glyph.

And hope that font developers don't create a glyph based on shape of
 U+1E8C7 and U+1E8D1, but PU instead.
