Hi Jirimutu,

The initial 182C is not in question and is on the way to being added to the Font Comparator Site. I had made a mistake in saying that we had no examples here - we have Erdenechimeg's example of QQIR. Whether you spell it with an initial QA or an initial GA, we have both specified now.

The medial feminine loop is the issue. If we do not have an example outside of the ligatures, then I don't think we should specify it. If we specify it, then we need to follow on with the dotted initial as well as the dotted/undotted medial. If we do this, then we need to match the same pattern with the 182D. We do not have any more FVS-space at 182D Medial. My solution is that the feminine loops appear only as isolates to represent their placement inside ligatures UNLESS they actually do appear outside of ligatures. Then we add a statement in the documentation saying that the isolate feminine forms (both dotted and undotted) represent the initial/medial occurrences of the same within ligatures. We have three situations where this is the case - 182C/182D/184E.

According to Erdenchimeg's post in August 4th , there are one word qqir, is the example of
Initial feminine  U+182C form.
In Inner Mongolia we all spell it as gqir, but if anyone like to spell it as qqir,
we have no reason to reject it actually. It is can be qqir, qgir, gqir, ggir actually, according to its display form.

We have not find any example word for medial feminine form. But like Siqin's raised usage text,
We will display it in the text for explanation.

What our request is leave this two form encoding ( U+182C feminine initial and medial form) in the Unicode list.
