The Unicode Standard v. 5.1 has 40 characters with a dot above in three ranges: ‘C’, ‘c’, ‘E’, ‘e’, ‘G’, ‘g’, ‘I’ (‘i’ is already in Basic Latin), ‘Z’ and ‘z’ in Latin Extended-A, ‘A’, ‘a’, ‘O’ and ‘o’, in Latin Extended-B, and ‘B’, ‘b’, ‘D’, ‘d’, ‘F’, ‘f’, ‘H’, ‘h’, ‘M’, ‘m’, ‘N’, ‘n’, ‘P’, ‘p’, ‘R’, ‘r’, ‘S’, ‘s’, ‘T’, ‘t’, ‘W’, ‘w’, ‘X’, ‘x’, ‘Y’, ‘y’ and long ‘s’ (no capital version) in Latin Extended Additional. This subrange contains additional characters with dot above. The Unicode Standard advises encoding characters of this type as a sequence of the baseline character and the COMBINING DOT ABOVE (0307), and this way of encoding has been given as an alternative for each character below. Many of these combinations are presumably rare in Medieval sources and therefore only a limited number of characters have been included in the present rec- ommendation. The two characters LATIN CAPITAL LETTER H WITH DOT ABOVE and LATIN SMALL LETTER H WITH DOT ABOVE have been assigned the code points EBD8 and EBD9 respectively by the TITUS project, but they are already in the Unicode Standard at code points 1E22 and 1E23 in Latin Extended Additional and have therefore been listed in that range. The list below contains additional vowels that do appear with diaeresis, including the semi-vowels ‘j’ and ‘v’ (and also, unusually, the ligature ‘pp’). Two ex- amples of diagonal diaeresis have been included at the end of the subrange; they belong to Medieval German usage.
