It is currently supported badly by Firefox and Chrome (used Chromium) on Linux;
I suspect it is not supported by IE, and I don't know about others (but they
all use Webkit now, don't they?...)

By "supported badly" I mean that applying separate styling to combining
characters does render a separately styled character, but it is usually moved a
little off the place it should be (less than a whole character width, but

I wasn't able to test this much on IE, as I'm not a Windows user. In the little
tests I was able to do, IE failed to display the combining characters; I can't
be sure if this was a problem with the feature or a font lacking the combining
characters I used (Hebrew diacritics). 

Also, I'm not sure the others behave the same in this respect on all platforms.
