The Combining Diacritical Marks range of Unicode 4.0 lists 107
combining marks which can be used in any combination. Some
combining marks are supposed to span two base characters.
Peter Constable (IIRC) reported on this list a while ago that there was
a Latin-based writing system used for an indigenous South American
language which stacks up to three marks above.
