In FreeSans, U+1DA6 MODIFIER LETTER SMALL CAPITAL I now looks identical to U+1DA7 MODIFIER LETTER SMALL CAPITAL I WITH STROKE; U+1DA6 should not have a stroke.

It seems I had already added most of the serifs in previous commits. Today's commit should finish it.

yeah.

Again, sans has other standing problems. I'll get to this.

In FreeSans, U+026A LATIN LETTER SMALL CAPITAL I does not have serifs. However, this letter should have serifs, even in a sans-serif font. Otherwise, the IPA sequences ⟨ɪ̀⟩ and ⟨ì⟩ are indistinguishable. Figure 10 of http://www.unicode.org/L2/L2012/12270-n4297-beta-etc.pdf gives an example of ⟨ɪ⟩ with serifs in a sans-serif font. This also applies to U+1DA6 MODIFIER LETTER SMALL CAPITAL I, U+1DA7 MODIFIER LETTER SMALL CAPITAL I WITH STROKE, and U+1D7B LATIN SMALL CAPITAL LETTER I WITH STROKE.

This doesn’t mean the small capital form of ⟨i⟩ should have serifs; it means that Ismallcap should not have a reference to sc.i.
