It *does* matter what font is used and what software is used. Provided you use software that has appropriate font-technology support, such as the OpenType support in Office 2003, and provided you use a font that supports that technology, such as the Doulos SIL font, it will display exactly as you require.
This excerpt from a screenshot shows how the character sequence < 1EB8, 0301, 1EB9, 0301 > appears in Word 2003 using the Doulos SIL font.
Unicode is *designed* to use combining sequences in this way. The fact that you see any precomposed combinations, even the e-dot, does not imply a precedent as these are the exceptions.
