It looks fine, or not fine, depending on which font and operating system
you are using. I'm using Lucida Sans Unicode on Windows 95 and the dot
is just a bit too far to the left.

These are minor, not dreadful, display problems which can be solved now
by choosing a different font, or later when fonts and rendering engines
are updated to improve the placement of combining marks. This is a more
portable and less costly solution than developing a new 8-bit encoding.
