is an example of й and и + U+0306 COMBINING BREVE used contrastively (/j/
vs short /i/) thanks to a difference in typographic style of Cyrillic breve
(kratka) and regular breve.
For me in Win7 using и + U+0306 results in a contrast, but given that и +
U+0306 is a canonical decomposition of й and a renderer is allowed, if not
encouraged, to use the glyph for й every time it sees и + U+0306, what is
the right (portable) way to do that? Would и + ZWNJ + U+0306 work? Should
