The first sentence is misleading:

  Self-inserting characters normally take on the same properties as the
  preceding character.

Is it about the characters themselves or about self-insertion of
those characters?

The rest of the node says, for example, that `insert' inserts without
inheritance.  Doesn't that mean that if you pass a string of
self-inserting chars to `insert' then they will not inherit from the
char before the insertion?  That is contradicted by the first sentence
of the node.

You might claim that the hand-waving word "normally" there means that
they do so only when self-inserted.  That's not obvious.  It would be
clearer to just say that: they inherit when they are self-inserted.

And if that is not always the case then add a waffle word "normally" or
"usually" back: usually they inherit when they are self-inserted.

I improved the wording along these lines.  Thanks.
