font/rendering logic. Whilst I appreciate that this is done in order that
the underlying spelling is the same, this isn't really a useful property
to have : there are only a few Quenya and Sindarin sounds that share the
same character in their normal modes, and they are different languages, so
words and names will (in the general case) be spelt differently anyway...
This would complicate writing a renderer, and make it impossible to
represent different modes in plaintext.
apart from that...
xx2D (short carrier) is mentioned in Appendix E :
"When there was no consonant present in the required position, the
/tehta/ was placed above the 'short carrier', of which a common form
was like an undotted i."
xx70 - xx7D come from a manuscript that I think was published in /Vinyar
Tengwar/. Perhaps someone else knows which issue.
I see no obvious (or subtle) errors.
