Hello friends,

I sent this query to Michael Everson directly on Feb. 19 but did not hear 
anything back. I assume that he was too busy to respond, perhaps I even broke 
some unwritten rule of etiquette, for which I apologize; so I am hoping that 
someone on the mailing list knows the answer instead.

I am the author of an open source blackletter typeface based on, but not 
exactly the same as, the typeface used in the 1611 King James Bible and 
facsimile reproductions of the same named in homage 
"https://github.com/ctrlcctrlv/kjv1611";. Although named such, I include as many 
glyphs as I can whether they existed in the 1611 KJV or not, as long as they 
were used in English blackletter typesetting generally.

Latin Capital Letter Is. I have found 
and examples of its younger brother, the so-called Latin Small Letter Is 
encoded as U+A76D (ꝭ).

I checked https://www.unicode.org/L2/L2006/06027-n3027-medieval.pdf to encode 
these letters, and unfortunately found there no proof of the existence of the 
capital variant. Is it a dreaded

should I handle this in my font?
