>I think you should always use the fully decomposed accents,
       which are all combining characters.
       The spacing accents are there only for special purposes, like
       them in text books
       explaining classical Greek.

       (Jeroen: it sounds like you're agreeing with Rick's reply.)

       OK, let me pose a slightly different question: Jeroen has
       suggested that the accent/breathing characters in the extended
       block such as U+1FBD *never* be used in forming words within
       actual text (I've document in an earlier message, though, that
       this is being done.), but only for special purposes such as
       meta-text description.

       Is this correct?
