I'm sending this on behalf of my coworker Sharon Correll:

We've run into this dotted circle problem on our ScriptSource website
( where we are trying to display diacritics from many
scripts in isolation, using a wide variety of fonts, eg: I wrote a blog post about the problem:

We've seen single dotted circles, double dotted circles, no dotted
circles, and even no diacritics at all. There is very little
consistency, so it seems like some interaction between the
font-smarts/rendering-engine/browser. I didn't investigate deeply
enough to figure out which, but bottom line, there doesn't seem to be
a good across-the-board solution.

Solving it on a script-by-script basis is not ideal, but we might bite
the bullet and do that if we could figure out something that would
actually give reasonable results.
