The Unicode Standard v. 5.1 has no fewer than 38 characters with a dot below, i.e. essentially the whole alphabet, ‘A–Z’ and ‘a–z’, in Latin Extended Ad- ditional. This subrange contains additional characters with dot below. The Unicode Standard advises encoding characters of this type as a sequence of the baseline character and the COMBINING DOT BELOW (0323), and this way of encoding has been given as an alternative for each character below. Note that the position of the dot below raises problems for the font designer, especially in connection with characters that have descenders or diacritics such as the ogonek. Individually designed glyphs will thus be useful even with a smart font solution.
