Hi Robert,

Thanks. I was interested to see so many combining marks on this list. Does
this mean that, despite their deprecation, MathPlayer allows for them in
MathML markup, or is it do with dealing with them outside of MathML?

John.

Hi Simon and John,

Here is a list of characters that MathPlayer currently considers for
special handling as accents.  There are some others as well that are
handled differently by MathPlayer, but there is no easy way to collect
of list of these exceptional cases, so I haven't bothered.

Obviously, this doesn't help you much with the project of picking a
"canonical" codepoint for these accents when there is a choice.  But
it might help you rule out some bad choices.  Hope it helps.
