Combining characters separated by markup

Discussion in 'XML' started by Andreas Prilop, May 30, 2005.

  1. In plain text, the letter "a" followed by combining mark U+0300
    should be displayed as "à", letter "a" with grave accent.
    Two or more Arabic letters in succession should join.

    What should happen when such characters are separated by markup in,
    say, text/html?

    Here is a test page for Arabic letters:
    http://www.unics.uni-hannover.de/nhtcapri/temp/nastaliq.html6
    Different programs display the last line "Arabic letters
    separated by HTML markup" differently. Notably, Internet Explorer
    ignores the markup and joins the letters (or combines base
    letters with non-spacing marks).
