    Let's be clear here. If a combining character, or sequence of combining
    characters, is preceded by a SP or NBSP (indifferently), it should be displayed
    stand-alone. In this case, the SP or NBSP does not represent whitespace as such.

    If there is neither a graphical base character nor a SP/NBSP before the
    combining character (or sequence), you can do what you like. A dotted-circle
    glyph is one appropriate choice.
