Subject: Capital hooked-Y glyph variants
Date: Sun, 06 Apr 2003 08:38:53 -0000

The Latin capital letter Y with hook U+01B3 is shown in the Unicode charts with its hook on the left. The pre-Unicode/non-Unicode usage I'm aware of in West Africa has the hook on the right. Can anyone tell me where is the left-hook variant is used?

I hope Peter Constable won't mind my passing on the URL of a page he set up on a related hooktop-y question (there are a couple of responses on it re the capital letter form in Africa): http://scripts.sil.org/cms/scripts/page.php?site_id=nrsi&item_id=HooktopYVariants

Thanks in advance for any info...
