My configuration is the same as yours except for Mozilla. I'm surprised
that would make a difference in font coverage, unless you also have an
improved Uniscribe (or it is using its own engine) that is pulling
U+0358 from some other font. It's definitely not in my copy of Lucida
Console 1.60.

Anyway, I'm always delighted when display support for Unicode improves.
At some point it will be possible for Min Nan Wikipedia to assume
"everyone" can view the raised dot (for sufficient, non-absolute values
of "everyone") and then they will probably start using it.
