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.

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.)
