    Just to clarify for the list: The page does display the tone letters
    U+02E5 through U+02E9 *in isolation*, as shown in the Unicode charts.
    What Peter is suggesting is that it should also attempt to display the
    contour marks using suitable combinations of the tone letters, "perhaps
    with a suitable note about limited support."

    WG2 documents N2626 and N2646 are useful starting points for
    understanding the relationship between the five basic tone letters and
    the numerous contour marks that can be constructed from them.
