And SGML.TXT contains this line:
>jnodot ISOamso 0x???? # latin small letter dotless j

Anyone knows, or can imagine, the rationale for the existence of a dotless j
in SGML?
Is this a character actually used to spell some language (in this case,
shouldn't it be in Unicode), or is it just a "presentation glyph" for when j
carries a combining accent?
