I've liked the idea of {h} as an allograph of {'} for a long time; I'm
actually rather pleased when I see And use it.  I'm not recommending that
{'} be dropped altogether, merely that {h} be counted an acceptable
substitute, at least under some circumstances (for example, I find {'}
horribly difficult to see in handwriting, and {h} is far, far better.)
