Not true. If you like, I can send you a copy of the VISCII report
showing not only the mappings, but also their justification. The
Viet-Std organization went to great lengths to avoid combining
characters, even, as John said, to the point of encoding six graphic
characters in the C-zero control area.
Perhaps you are thinking of Windows code page 1258, which includes many
precomposed letters, but none in the Latin Extension B block, and does
require combining marks for vowels with two diacritics.
