            Use a picture, just as you would for a letter "i" with a smiley face
    for a dot, or any other aberrant characters.

            Wouldn't the better idea here be to use a font which had the vowels
    in a different color? This would make management of the source much easier,
    I think, although that would be a side issue. Are there situations where
    this would not work?
