The above example is perhaps unlikely, but you could have, say:




The same script can be used more or less differently according to the 
underlying language.

I'm not sure I understand where your doubt is, but if those tags select 
a set of features for a certain language (which is the case, I hope) 
then it makes sense to declare both script and language.

Best wishes (and good luck with Emacs),


P.S. Is Carbon Emacs used in Terminal? I never was able to display or 
type Unicode properly in Terminal.
