On this issue too, I'm left wonderinging if there is any standardization
I'm afraid I don't understand.
If not, I'd like to suggest we reserve 0 and 1 for this
Which purpose? Use 0/1 for inferior/superior or user-defined?
and use some other letter for scaled variants.
Is there any point in a variant meaning ``this is scaled''? Don't you
also have to know what the scaling is (which obviously can't be encoded
in one or two chars)? I suppose that could be done in following
numbers, as in ptmrZ1112 for the putative ``scaled variant'' character Z
(I don't know what the character should really be yet, probably 2 or 3
is all that's possible) and a scaling of 11/12.
Or we could just forget the whole thing :-).
