In relation to new users, when a character such as U+1E03 LATIN SMALL LETTER
B WITH DOT ABOVE is implemented as a glyph in a font, should the dot always
be round regardless of the general design of the character set or may the
dot be implemented as a shape in the general style of the font please?
For example, could the dot be implemented as a filled square if the
diaeresis is implemented in that font as two filled squares or should the
dot be implemented as a filled disc regardless of the general design of the
font? For example, in the type face Old English Text MT, the diaeresis is
two filled squares with the edges all at an angle of 45 degrees to vertical:
for a font with that style of glyph design would it be right to implement
U+1E03 using one such filled square or should a filled disc be used?
