    I’m wondering if it is possible to make a font for zhuyin which behaves similar as Hangeul Jamo.

    Currently, if I type ㄓㄨˋ ㄧㄣ, it will be displayed in a line, with the tone mark after it. This not only does not look very nice, but also is too long.

    I thus wonder, if I can create a font which stacks the characters on top of each other and then puts the tone mark at the right. I guess, the method would be similar, or even identical, to Hangeul. But, Zhuyin characters are not designed by Unicode to behave like that (at least as far as I know). I wonder, if I can create a font with this behaviour nonetheless.

    I think, this would be possible by creating many ligatures, but this is not convenient and does not allow to create customized syllables, so the Hangeul method would be better.

    Does anyone know something about this?
