    The solution would be to create a font in which it did look correct.

    Of necessity, fonts such as Doulos SIL must meet the needs of many
    languages, even though it is well-known that accented characters have a
    language-specific look even in Latin, for example in French and Polish.
    For fine typography, one uses language-specific, and often
    country-specific, fonts that capture exactly what the users expect to see.
