Yes, I regularly use those fonts. The spacing tone marks are quite ok, but
they don’t have non-spacing-marks, or at least it looks ugly (the tone marks
collide with the base characters)

Yep, I also got them. This is quite ok, but first, I don’t know how to deal
with different readings, e.g. ㄏㄨㄟˋ and ㄎㄨㄞˋ for 會, and second, I can’t get
the reading on its own (for example, the cells of my vocabulary lists are:
Chinese – Reading – German).
But thanks nonetheless!
