Zhuang's Latin Ze/3[edit]

The Zhuang letter doesn't seem to have any relationship with the Cyrillic Ze. Wouldn't it be better represented by the Latin letter ezh (Ʒ)? Michael Z. 2006-09-26 01:24 Z

Besides that it doesn't look like an ezh, Unicode explicitly says that it's Cyrillic Ze. --Ptcamn 01:58, 26 September 2006 (UTC)
