    However, they may render differently! For example, Lucida Sans Unicode
    Version 2.0 (dated 1993) has U+0323 combining dot below, but not U+1E6D,
    LATIN SMALL LETTER T WITH DOT BELOW. So U+0074 U+0323 is rendered from the
    font, but U+1E6D is not, despite their having identical meanings.
