On p.228 of the printed TUS 5.0 is stated:
"Diacritics on i and j. A dotted (normal) i or j followed by a
nonspacing mark above loses the dot in rendering."
As this paragraph does not explicitly refer to
U+0069 LATIN SMALL LETTER I
is the conclusion correct that it applies to all Latin small i`s,
U+0365 COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER I
U+2071 SUPERSCRIPT LATIN SMALL LETTER I
In other words, is it correct to encode the entity marked in red in
the attached scan (showing a dotless i with macron over an e) as
U+0065 U+0365 U+0304?
Or, if such things should be representable in Unicode, is there
a COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER DOTLESS I to be proposed?
(The scan is from:
Einführung in den Sprachatlas der Deutschen Schweiz
Bern 1962, p.53)
