    European combining marks can be displayed even without the NBSP. I juts
    tested this. Indic combining marks without a base character that the
    rendering engine (rightly or wrongly) expects are rendered with a dotted
    circle to indicate the base character. I thought that my software will
    support at least the Unicode-prescribed usage of NBSP as a base
    character, but they don't... :(
