Could you please say some more about what is going to be encoded in regular
Unicode and with which code points please?
In relation to your encoding these characters as Private Use Area
characters, I wonder if you could please say some more about this please,
both in relation to which code points you are intending to use and also as
to whether encoding a combining accent character or a combining double into
the Private Use Area could lead potentially to any problems over a rendering
system recognizing the character as being a combining character (please know
that I have no specific reason to think that it would, it is just a
possibility about which I wondered when considering various uses of the
Private Use Area).
