    Differentiate the two kinds of "tone letters", one with the reference bars on the right (as implemented in vanilla LaTeX tipa) and the other with the reference bars on the left (as used for English intonation, page 26 of Chao 1930, and the Tibetan illustration, page 27). Thanks to Alexis Michaud for pointing out the differences.
