Deseret Alphabet extended PUA mappings

The Deseret alphabet was a script created by the settlers of Deseret (now Utah) in the hope that a phonemic spelling reform would help non-native speakers of English to integrate with the community. This had limited success. Its use is now limited to hobbyists; it has no direct relevance to the Utahns or LDS of today.

Unicode includes an encoding for this but it there are certain ways in which this is insufficient.

TODO: write more here. In the meantime, you can read the preamble comments in my mapping file.

Noto-derived font with corrected Vee and supplying some (not all) of these mappings as well as the Unicode mappings for the subset where they exist: DeseretExPUA-Regular.ttf
