    You can type it, if you have a keyboard containing this sequence or the
    single characters composing it:

            (U+0069 <i>, U+0301 <acute accent>, U+006A <j>, U+0301 <acute

    Or, canonically equivalent:

            (U+00ED <i with acute accent>, U+006A <j>, U+0301 <acute accent>)

    Whether or not it displays fine, depends on the font and display engine you

    BTW, you could NOT encode that with the precomposed "?" (U+0133 <ij
    ligature>), because two accents applied to a single base character would
    display on top of each other.
