Thanks a lot for the example, this is really good!

Ok, but what about this example (which is the most interesting use case
as this is something impossible to achieve even by modifying the
patterns in a convoluted way) :

(I think you'll need the patterns at


for the test to be working)


cœli % should be cœli

cœ́li % should be cœ́-li

\hjcode 769=0 % combining acute counts for 0

cœ́li % would be great if it was cœ́li

Indeed, we already have the patterns with ǽ anyway, so it's not a big

Thank you!
