Lower-case Latin U[edit]

I have sometimes seen this letter written as what appears to me a conventional lower-case Latin 'u'. Is there some reason for this? -Chinju 22:53, 5 October 2005 (UTC)

That's how it is normally hand-written. See Cyrillic alphabet#Letterforms and typography. Michael Z. 2005-10-5 23:03 Z
Ah, thanks, that was quite informative. -Chinju 23:55, 5 October 2005 (UTC)
I've seen it in 'u' form in italic cyrillic text, as well. Note War and Peace (1968 film): its title in italics changes и to и. T. S. Rice 02:52, 5 June 2006 (UTC)

Math formula[edit]

I've seen it in a math formula, any idea what it could mean?? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:29, 24 January 2007 (UTC)

Nine Inch Nails[edit]

Should there be a brief comment on using it to write NIИ?Adavies42 (talk) 16:14, 10 August 2009 (UTC)

Confusing opening[edit]

Currently the article begins like this:

I (И и; italics: И и) is a letter ...

While there is more detail later on, at this stage it is totally confusing why the letters within the brackets should have a wildly different form from I, which is also the article title. There need to be some helpful words added. Unfortunately I do not know the best way to address this. (talk) 01:15, 19 August 2013 (UTC)
