Georgian Extended is a Unicode block containing Georgian Mtavruli (Georgian: მთავრული, "title" or "heading") letters that function as uppercase versions of their Mkhedruli counterparts in the Georgian block.[3] Unlike all other casing scripts in Unicode, there is no title casing between Mkhedruli and Mtavruli letters, because Mtavruli is typically used only in all-caps text, although there have been some historical attempts at capitalization.[4]
