Why, oh why, did the makers of IPA have to make a distinction between
regular a and SCRIPT A?  I mean, they already used capital letters with
i/I, so why not use lower-case and capital A instead of regular and
script A?  I mean, that's so hard to distinguish in handwriting.  Not to
mention ash and the o-e ligature.  Egads, could there be a harder
distinction to make in handwriting?
