Just so there is no confusion: If the "new character" you are proposing
is a Greek lowercase nu with a macron above, then it will not ever be
approved in Unicode, because it can already be represented with the
sequence U+03BD U+0304.
If you are having problems getting this sequence to display properly in
In general you will achieve your goals much faster by waiting for
browser and display-engine technology to improve so that combining
diacritics are displayed correctly than by proposing new precomposed
characters and (even if they were approved) waiting for "the most
common" general-purpose fonts to be updated to include them.
