TECH (?) question: diacritics

From:ROGER MILLS <rfmilly@...>

1. is there a precomposed char. for ä (a umlaut) with acute accent?
2. If not, is there some way to do this (in typing, using "insert spec.
char") ? While we're at it, how would one do it it html??  I managed this
once, but have forgotten how.........
(I use a PC, OO Writer, Thryomanes font).

3. failing that, is there a precomposed char. for _a_ plus double acute, or
some way to do it (in typing, again)? I thought Hungarian used this, but in
my Thryomanes font I find only a with double _grave_, whch I could be
pressed into service. In fact, why not use the grave for stress, instead of
acute?? 6 of one........

The problem arises occasionally in MNCL Prevli. Of course I could cite the
form in IPA along with the written form, since Prevli speakers know where
the accent goes; it's just us outlanders who need to know.............
