For Mac users only
- I've been using the Normyn Pali fonts on my Macs for some years, and I've never
figured out how to get uu (long lowercase u). I know that shift + option + ; give the
uppercase long u. But option + ; gives elipsis.
Some years ago a monk in Sri Lanka tried to find an aswer for me, but nothing
worked. It is odd that this is the only Pali character I can't duplicate.
Any insight into this would be greatly appreciated.

hope not to use Normyn much longer... I hope to convert my Pali
files to Unicode and get away from these oddball encodings. If
you still have a problem, tell us which OS, whether you are using
TrueType or Adobe Type 1 version of font, etc.
There are various utility programs that will display all the glyphs
in a font and let you copy and paste from their display, maybe
one of those would help you.

long u, lower case, was also the hardest character for me to find
until I started using it. Google 'PopChar' for where to download. I
use a Swedish keyboard so my keystroke combo might not work, but fwiw
it's ¨ shift-e.
