Last week I saw on TV (portuguese channel RTP2) a typo in the subtitles
of an US movie; a spanish word in the original was kept in the
translation, rendered with a n-diaeresis in lieu of a n-tilde.
AFAIK, there is no such pre-composed sequence, which can only be
rendered in Unicode as U+006E U+0308.
That made me think how could such letter appear on my TV screen.
1. Could the system used for the subtitles have a code point for
n-diaeresis (selected by mistake instead of the correct letter)? I
suppose it shouldn't be so, as a compatibility character covering it in
Unicode would be expected.
2. The subtitles were created with a system capable of composing
n-diaeresis (which is a good thing) and which apparently accepts
easy-to-use keyboard input (allowing even typos -- which were common in
typewriter days but which computer had extinguished).
