This might be caused by Unicode 1. Then they mixed up yogh and ezh.  
Both glyphs come from different edges of Europe. Ezh is a Latin  
(Roman) character, a chiselled z with the lower horizontal line  
substituted with a leftwards open ring. Yogh comes from Ireland or  
Scotland and is some hundred years younger, and rounder, being part  
of uncial or half-uncial scripts. It is related to LATIN SMALL LETTER  
INSULAR G (U+1D79) or the chiselled ounce symbol (OUNCE SIGN, U 
+2125). Yogh lives in an English word like to cough (while in through  
or night it's dead). To me yogh is more U+021C/U+021D. Half-uncial's  
g also looked like yogh – or 3.



Windows, c'est un peu comme le beaujolais nouveau: à chaque nouvelle  
cuvée on sait que ce sera dégueulasse, mais on en prend quand même,  
par masochisme.
