I am just writing a mail to someone in Russia who suggests to encode a
"barred o with macron" which is used in the Orok language.
Trying to explain to him that the encoding of such letters is not
needed, as sequences like U+04E9 U+0304 are appropriate, I have created
a little Internet page to prove this: http://www.pentzlin.com/Orok.html
I am horrified to see the result, using a computer with the newest
version of Microsoft Vista and Internet Explorer (see attached
Orok.png). Firefox does not perform better.
Thus, sequences like U+04E9 U+0304 are NOT appropriate to fulfil the
user's needs, as long as leading operating systems behave like this
more than 10 years after Unicode has decided no longer to accept
Microsoft et al., PLEASE do your homework! Please do it RIGHT NOW!
