Actually, it's an ezh. A yogh is another of those fun characters used in English past to represent a /j/ or /G/ sound. Michael Everson wrote a discussion about them at <> and <> (also has a bit about the history of the IPA). (His site is a very nice resource for scripts or unicode.) Tristan (lover of dead characters. Hwair is another good one, though it's only used for transliterations of Gothic. I may have to fix that...)
