@woozle there's a "combining diaresis" character, which you can probably awkwardly copy paste from some web site; paste it before the "n" and it should work, though some fonts may not align it nicely. ;)
Hah, managed to copy paste it from this Wikipedia article : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N-diaeresis
@brion @woozle this is how both look on my browser on a Windows 10 machine in what appears to be Verdana (which is odd, because my user stylesheet says '"Optima Nova LT Pro", "Atkinson Hyperlegible", Verdana, sans-serif', and I'm quite sure those fonts are installed, so I'm not sure why it's falling back to Verdana...)
@brion @woozle ah, the actual post is displayed in Optima Nova LT Pro, but apparently it doesn't support this composition, and thus is falling back to Verdana (which also apparently doesn't support it...)...
If I 'inspect' the entire post rather than just the paragraph containing the n and diaresis, I get:
Optima nova LT Pro—Local file (256 glyphs)
Verdana—Local file (3 glyphs)
