Thanks for the suggestions.

For the improved text: Instead of the current "Text run starts with a composing
character.", how about:

"Separate styling for composing characters is not supported well by current
browsers. If no separate styling is intended, avoid starting text runs with
composing characters."

(in case this "standard but not supported well" is the whole sense of warnings,
then perhaps this is not the place to add it, but in a more general place in
the validator output).

Thanks again,

Shai.
