Dear all,

Sorry about the double post....

I see that with small cap r you mean what I would call capital R:
Yess, a SMALL capital R (my "cap" was just meant as an abbreviation).

***In the IPA chart, there's no R/ under approximant?
No, but the "uvular fricative" symbol is used when necessary (sometimes with a small semicircle under it, meaning an opener pronunciation).
The Lucida Sans Unicode font can be downloaded from the phoNet "Files" page:
You can also download SC UniPad, a program for composing texts in Unicode characters including IPA symbols (I've just updated it).
You asked about "mainstream RP". "RP" stands for "Received Pronunciation", or what people also call the standard British English accent.
Best regards,
