The Unicode Standard v. 5.1 has no precomposed characters with acute accent and dot above. This combination is found over vowels in Icelandic manuscripts, and although the two marks could be described as stacking (the dot, then the accent), they should preferably be rendered side by side. Note that in some manu- scripts, the acute accent is written before the dot, but there does not seem to be any linguistic difference between the two ways of ordering the marks. This subrange contains 16 precomposed characters with a combination of acute accent and dot above. The Unicode Standard advises encoding characters of this type as a sequence of the baseline character and the COMBINING DOT ABOVE (0307) and the COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT (0301), and this way of encoding has been given as an alternative for each character below.
