It sounds like you're asking for two things: (1) a keyboard input method in
which one keystroke enters two characters, and (2) a font rendering system
that maps two characters into a single glyph. Is that correct? Perhaps if
you mentioned exactly what characters you're talking about, we could give
you a more informative answer.

Also, nobody can comment on OS support unless you tell us what OS you're
interested in.
