Ouch. RLM is not expected to fall between combining marks. Not only does
this not render correctly, Uniscribe treats it as an illegal sequence and
inserts a dotted circle before the second mark.

I can't test this at the moment, because none of the fonts I have support it.

If you browse in the shelves that, in American bookstores,
are labeled New Age, you can find there even Saint Augustine,
who, as far as I know, was not a fascist. But combining Saint
Augustine and Stonehenge -- that is a symptom of Ur-Fascism.
