You can adapt this answer using the T4 encoding






$\hookD\ne D\quad \hookD_{\hookD_{\hookD}}$

enter image description here

You can create a table of the T4 encoding by typesetting the following document:


This is how I found the magic number 129.

Unfortunately, T4 fonts for the Computer Modern family (FC fonts) don't have a Type1 version and this is the reason of the lines \pdfpkresolution and \pdfpkmode: creating bitmaps at high resolution.

Here's a solution for XeLaTeX (assuming that the main font has the glyph and that a matching math font exists). Also unicode-math could be used, of course.

\setmainfont{Times New Roman}
      {\mbox{\fontsize\tf@size\z@\normalfont\itshape Ɗ}}
      {\mbox{\fontsize\tf@size\z@\normalfont\itshape Ɗ}}
      {\mbox{\fontsize\sf@size\z@\normalfont\itshape Ɗ}}
      {\mbox{\fontsize\ssf@size\z@\normalfont\itshape Ɗ}}


$Ɗ\ne D$

So this one's actually not in tipa nor anywhere else in The Comprehensive List? – doncherry May 20 '12 at 22:35
@doncherry The uppercase version isn't an IPA symbol, so not in TIPA. – Alan Munn May 20 '12 at 22:37
@AlanMunn: Thanks, I shouldn't only have skimmed the Wiki article :) – doncherry May 20 '12 at 22:57
Thanks very much for the help – adam May 21 '12 at 11:00
