I forgot to mention that my Uniscribe (both WINDOWS\system32\usp10.dll, and
Programme\Gemeinsame Dateien\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE11\usp10.dll) is version
*1.471.4063.0*. I guess, I have installed those libraries together with the
Ezra SIL 2.00 font from <>.
Apparently, my system is not as off-the-shelf as I had assumed, in the
first place.

In Windows XP, I have activated the support for complex scripts (including
Thai) and right-to-left scripts; this may also influence the rendering of
combining characters that are placed besides a letter (rather than above/below

Also, I have some more fonts installed. Short of de-installing those,
on by one, I have no idea how I could determine the font from which
either Uniscribe or Mozilla may have pulled the character.

Best wishes,
