Weirdoes, ligatures)

>>About <n>. There is at least one occurrence of a weirdo which
is <en> connected. All this makes me think that <e> and <i>
are allographes. Or environment-conditioned allophonic 
variations (another bag of grist to the Chinese-theory mill).

	That would be the '@' sign would it not? I certainly agree
that e's and i's appear to be allographes. Especially, because
the form so many similar characters/glyphs when the ligatures are
added to them.
