Or "\u0329", depending on which diacritic was used in the source.
Also, since the mark below can appear along with a combining grave
or acute, those decompositions would have to be considered in the
search and replace operations.

Perhaps they've chosen their custom encoding in order to side-step the
mark-below issue. As you say, it shouldn't be hard to enable Unicode

is reached on the mark below, it shouldn't be that hard to convert their
entire web site and database to Unicode, too!
