This is overstating the matter, though. There were a number of people
who reported that "äb̈c̈d̈ëf̈g̈ḧïj̈k̈l̈m̈n̈öp̈q̈r̈s̈ẗüv̈ẅẍÿz̈å̈ä̈ö̈" was displayed
correctly on their systems when it came up on this mailing list six
months ago. It looks fine, if not great, here on a UTF-8 xterm. There
are a number of programs that handle and even print combining characters
on Linux.
