    The "font"? Are you sure that the text is typeset at all? Looks pretty
    handwritten to me, not surprising in a 1972 map. If I remember
    correctly, the sign is derived from a small superscript "u" (as in
    "burg" vs. "berg").

    Do they contain a zero-width superscript breve glyph? Or any breve
    glyph at all
