(I do appreciate the explanation that the script propery is inherited with 'zinh' because I did not get it . . . in spite of the fact that John explained 'zinh' properly.
Thanks, Peter.)


My question is:  does this particular subtag 'zinh' help any applications display characters properly?


In any case, it has to be registered.


Could we change John's comment slightly?:


> Comment: Used to tag diacritics only; not for use with documents.  




Tags diacritics for any script, and does not affect the script property, which is inherited.

(But this gets a bit wordy.  I'll try to think of something more terse that does the trick)

> The text element a with acute has two fully-equivalent representations in ISO/IEC 10646, just as John indicated. In terms of encoded characters, one representation has one encoded character while the other representation uses two encoded characters, but they represent one and the same text element.

> I don't see what bearing this has on John's explanation of Zinh, however: the combining acute, U+0301, can be combined with characters of various scripts, and so its script property is inherited.
