Latin Extended A comprises the characters in Latin-2, Latin-3, Latin-4, and Latin-5 that are not also in Latin-1. AFAIK there is no European language that requires i~, so it didn't make it into any of these character sets. In Vietnamese, though, ~ is a tone mark, and therefore can appear over any vowel; like the other precomposed Vietnamese-only characters, i~ appears in Latin Extended Additional. James Kass's CODE2000 and CODE2001 fonts are quite comprehensive and are being regularly updated: see . -- One art / There is John Cowan <jcowan@...> No less / No more All things / To do With sparks / Galore -- Douglas Hofstadter
