4. Non-Unicode characters
Nevertheless, sometimes Unicode is not enough…
- … if your character doesn't exist
- … if you want to distinguish letter forms that Unicode regards
as identical e.g. for statistical analysis.
The <g> (gaiji) element stands for any non-Unicode
character. Its content can be a local approximation to the desired
letter (or nothing); its @ref attribute points to a
definition for the required character or glyph.
