    Dear John,

    thank-you, GPOS certainly manages to centre the dots correctly-at
    least in some applications.

    U+0332 combining low line however needs to be half or full width
    depending upon the width of the character it is combined with.

    It would appear from comparng that Code2000 and SIL Doulos use some
    other mechanism to produce stacking.

    For some reason - the stacking feature, by mark to ligature does not
    seem to work. This however maybe due to other factors.
