Y is for Yogh

Yogh? Yogh? What? Our 'y' is a Caxton-cut of the old English letter yogh (Ȝȝ), itself developed from Semitic 'gimel'. And a borrowed Latin Y. And a rune and some Greek. Such a checkered history.

Don't forget to grab the editable eps and use the character for your project, or smash it up and send me a copy back. The edit's I'll feature here as a changelog to track its development.
