Are you asking what schemes exist, or are you trying to call attention
to some rendering engine and/or font that doesn't render a combination
as it should?

This is too general for me to parse. Can you replace these hypotheticals
with actual characters, using code points, or at least with actual
General Categories? For example, an 'Mc' followed by ZWSP followed by an
'Lo' displays like such-and-so. The code points would be best.
