A font representing my mothers handwriting (german only :-)
would render "u" as "u with breve above" to distinguish it
from the representation of "n".
I don't know how my mother would write a text containing an
"u with breve above", but nevertheless the u-glyphe has to have
a breve, even if it may conflict with another charakter.
If you got a text with such ambiguities, why don't use another
font for the quotings? - has the additional advantage of
pointing out visualy that it's a quotation.
