This mail is written with the Yoruba Keyboard that was rolled out yetserday.
Please just look at the issue raised earlier raised.


Looking at the above it is obvious that the acute on top of the e and o with
dot below is a bit too high almost to the point of looking like a cedilla
under E.

In transit the acute and the grave could be removed by just putting the
cursor in between ẹ́ and ọ́ because ther are combined in a way that is not

It even becomes a compounded problem during copying and pasting because the
accent occupy two cursor space. I still think with all these observations
something must be done.
