As you have not specified the font in which this sequence is to occur, 
your two \kerns, expressed in ems, are unlikely to reliably work as 
intended.  Apart from a well-intentioned desire for portability, is 
there any reason why your definition cannot also include font family, 
size, variant, etc ?
