It includes all of the full Language support for Afrikaans, Archaic Greek

Ligatures, Mathematical Operators, Pan African Latin, Pinyin, Polytonic

Contextual alternates".

*New possibilities in Version 5*

and in transliterations of tonal languages that make extensive use of
diacritical and IPA characters.
