Default The yogh in the news

'The yogh, a letter not found on modern keyboards. The letter, encoded in Unicode at 021C for upper case and 012D for lower case is included in the Windows Vista version of Times New Roman, Arial and the UI fonts, so maybe we'll see a yogh renaissance?'

This short piece, taken from Microsoft's typography pages, was occasioned by the recent prominence of Sir Menzies ('Ming') Campbell in the UK news. There is a link to the BBC's article on the yogh, which occurs in the Scottish name Menzies disguised as a z. (You all know that, don't you?)
