If the Wikipedia page(s) are correct, then Unicode isn't. Unicode
charts don't show the glyph on the dotted circle and the canonical
combining class is shown as "spacing". The fact that Doug Ewell found
some installed fonts displaying the character as a combining mark
suggests that the Wikipedia pages are correct. This character is listed
as being unused in modern Armenian, but you'd think that it would have
been exposed before now since the charcter has been in Unicode since
