While creating a new version of the document you can consult in
< http://www.flagspot.net/flags/bib_main.html >, I noticed that IE5
managed to do something I found quite strange while trying to display
the HTML sequence «... Ẑitni ...». Somehow, the font engine
managed to know that U+0302 is a combining character, but found no glyph
for it in the current font (Times New Roman); as the result I got a
hollow square superimposed on a "Z". Is this the expected behaviour?
BTW, why did I use U+005A U+0302 instead of the precomposed U+1E90?
Well, I could say I wanted to do things the right way, but that'd not be
true (the following letter, f.i., is made with U+0109, not with U+0063
U+0302). When I made the Excel transliteration table which generated
this, some time ago, I just used all the precomposed sequences avilable
back then, and resorted to combining marks only where no precomposed
chracters were avaliable -- that seemed the right thing to do back then.
