Sounds about right-and looking through, I can't find a unicode for yogh, which is annoying, I actually know someone with that in their name afterall...

Seriously. How do you get thorns and not yoghs? (She said, grumblingly marking their absences...)

I believe it's because Icelandic still uses thorns and eths, but not yoghs.

- from a non-PhD medievalist.

That would make sense, but... really, when it's the printer choking and dying on the yoghs, as opposed to the font or the PDF, I still blink.

(Quite neat! Thank you.)
