  It *is* standardized; it's the same character, U+027F, with a
different glyph form. And I insist that \textlhtlongi should be the
representative glyph for U+027F in favour of \textlhti, like I said in
my previous mail.

  It is; it's the apical dental vowel (transcribed in IPA with U+007A U+0329),
and it corresponds to the letter i in pinyin after the consonants z, c, and s.

  Yeah, sure.
