É Eacute Unicode 00C9



The next few months will feature a lot of different letters with diacritics. A new milestone release is coming up – Version 0.3 – that will add more than 128 such letters (the full Unicode block Latin Extended-A and a few from beyond). This only leaves a couple of episodes to introduce some of the letters from Latin-1 Supplement, which are already included.

As a German, I'm intimately familiar with the umlauts ÄÖÜ, so they and other accents have been included since the earliest days of Minima – although it took some time until they fit ideally. Bearing the name René, I also have a very natural interest in rendering the letter É in a visually appealing way.


ÈÉ ÉÈ

The standard form 'É' is changed to the more restricted secondary form when it would otherwise connect to the following letter, especially in the case of a clashing diacritic.
