RE: Unusual Isolated Form of Ang

Hi Andrew,

I do not know of this form, myself.

Is this possibly a head letter used in a dictionary?

I can send in a note to Professor Quejingzhabu on it.

Can anyone else comment on this form:

Subject: Unusual Isolated Form of Ang

Are you or other experts on this list aware of the isolated form of ang shown in the attached image?  This comes from a list of Mongolian letters in "mongγol nanggiyad üsüg-ün toli bičig" (蒙漢字典) published in 1928.  This is shown in context at

page 9, notated as "迎阿".

It looks like the final form of ang, but with an initial head.  My correspondent wants to know how to represent this isolate form in Unicode, and I was unable to create this form using the Mongolian Baiti font, so I am wondering whether it is covered by the new proposal, and if not, whether perhaps a VS for this alternative isolated form should be defined.  My apologies if this has already been discussed on this list.
