documentation of encodings is in the latex doc encguide, which we put
together some time around 2000, and that contains the twisty little
passages that criss-cross the various sub-encodings of TS1.  there isn't
much that textcomp can do that isn't covered by encguide, i thought.

i had missed the appearance of the documentation, let alone its
subsequent disappearance.
