Hold on, I didn't say i was satisfied. I did say that this is probably only related to colour, and i did say that the text you added is useful in the interim.  I'd still like to be able to do some sub-grapheme-cluster highlighting of characters, if possible, in a way that works across browsers. (And I agree that the content author would need to use and serve a particular font to get reliable results.) I'm not super-confident that we'll find a way to make it happen, but it didn't seem to me that the discussion had quite run aground as yet, and the interactive test was designed to help clarify thoughts around it.

If you're trying to get rid of this issue so that you can publish css-text, it may be appropriate to defer this to level 4, but i prefer not to close until i've been convinced that this is really never going to be achievable, since it would be a really useful feature.
