The letters "i" and "j" lose their dots when an accent is placed over them. In the few cases where this is not true, Unicode encodes "i" + COMBINING DOT ABOVE + COMBINING ACUTE, or whatever. Consequently, there is no need for a dotless j character, since nobody uses dotless j by itself. -- Real FORTRAN programmers can program FORTRAN John Cowan in any language. --Allen Brown
