Hmmm... Don't want to start a war, but I do have to ask.
Isn't this correct behavior? Doesn't the code above explicitly
separate the two codepoints to prevent them from being rendered as a
sequence? I mean, if I wanted to display nu, then macron, without combining
behavior, wouldn't this be one way to do it? Combining across markup seems
counterintuitive (and a violation of layering) to me.
