But there is no clear-cut alternative for any of those. N'ko encoding
is font-kludge, Unicode, or nothing. Here there is a fourth possibility:

It was dreary and wearisome.  Cold clammy winter still held way in this
forsaken country.  The only green was the scum of livid weed on the dark
greasy surfaces of the sullen waters.  Dead grasses and rotting reeds loomed
up in the mists like ragged shadows of long-forgotten summers.
