Glad you found it so.
There's another technical distinction made in Unicode contexts that
hasn't come up in the "abstract character" thread, but is found
peripherally in the above TN: that between a "script" (examples:
Cyrillic, Han, Hiragana) and a "writing system" (e.g. the Russian
alphabet, the Japanese writing system). Unicode encodes scripts; it
makes no attempt to encode the various subsets, combinations, and
rules that comprise writing systems.
