    And yet one more thing:

    The underdot (low glottalised tone), when applied to the lowercase y,
    should sit just slightly to the right of the descending stroke, far enough
    under the right side of the letter to make it clear that the dot is below
    and not to the side of the letter. Clearly, this would be impossible in
    designs that have a straight right side descending y (e.g. the Bremer
    Presse roman). I don't know what to suggest for such cases other than to
    avoid such designs when making typefaces for Vietnamese.
