Perhaps a very minor point, but in Dee and Kelly's enochian alphabet, "y"
was noted as a separate character from "i" (called in the angelic script
"gon") by the addition of a dot over the character, thereby denoting in
effect a marginal 23rd character.

Maybe significant, and maybe not. But for those who like to assume a
connection between the VMS and Edward Kelly (a camp I don't personally
subscribe to at this point), perhaps at least worth considering...
