    Apropos the discussion on combining sequences:

    I had needed a quick reference for (canonical) composite characters,
    written a quick chart (well, actually, a quick program for generating
    In case anyone is interested I posted it on:

    I found it a reasonably compact way to reference all composites,
    the ones that are excluded from NFC. The presentation is not very
    but tool-tips are enabled with character names. Red means 'excluded
    composition'. The rest of the structure should be more or less clear.

    Curiously enough, it seems to expose a bug in Arial Unicode MS: the
    character U+1E4B gets a funny glyph. (This is on the AUMS from Office
    I have Office XP but haven't yet gone through the process of
    installing it
    yet, so it may be fixed there.)
