    To keep the upper case and lower case characters in sync for decomposition,
    they always have the same combining characters. For another example, G with
    cedilla gets the cedilla on top when it's a capital, but it still decomposes
    to the ordinary combining cedilla. These are essentially font-ligaturing

    To say that Bilbo's breath was taken away is no description at all.  There are
    no words left to express his staggerment, since Men changed the language that
    they learned of elves in the days when all the world was wonderful. --The Hobbit
