These happen to coincide in the Ethi case, but in other cases, where the 
underlying ISO standard doesn't match what you would consider the 
correct spelling, it looks like there is still disagreement.  We'll have 
to address such issues as they come up.

Yeah, I noticed that too.  I'm guessing it would be U+02BC but prefer to 
wait for Michael to say.

We're only talking about aopstrophes.  For now I've abandoned thoughts 
of providing ASCII fallbacks for accented letters, because of the 
controversy that caused.
