    All you need in order to be able to print Cyrillic with combining
    diacritics (as needed for text books etc.) is a good OpenType font
    covering Cyrillic, including the combining diacritics, and having
    OpenType glyph positioning tables. And, a system plus applications
    which support such OpenType rendering.

    Here's a page listing several fonts, several of which should have
    the necessary OpenType tables. The Doulos SIL font may be one
    of the best choices here.

    Attached is a small graphic showing some Russian Unicode text with
    combining diacritics displayed with Doulos SIL. The system is
    Windows XP with an up-to-date "Uniscribe" and the application
    is BabelPad.

    Best regards,

    James Kass
