It is best to avoid confusing mark positioning with kerning, since these
are necessarily separate procedures. Horizontal spatial relationships
between letters, including kerning (i.e. pair-specific adjustment of
individual letter advance widths) needs be independent of mark
positioning and, indeed, to ignore the presence of mark glyphs in the
string (except in exceptional cases that are typeface-specific and need
to be controlled at the font level).
