    Thank you very much Doug and Peter!


    did you test it on Linux or on Windows ?

    I just discovered that it works on Linux/Mozilla (Fedora2) in the opposite order
    if I don't specify any font in the html document.
    As soon as I specify a certain font, the macron is displayed on the right or left
    again. That is strange. (below is an example with all combinations)

    Thank you again!
