Mac users are also, as a rule, more tech-savvy people than PC users.
They're a lot more likely to see a problem like this as something
fixable, then figure out how to fix it. Michael's already admitted
he'll have no problem with y-acute in Quark, so that settles the Mac
And besides Unicode, what about PDFs, which will look the same on any
machine? What about internet browsers that just select a font
appropriate to the characters used on a web page?
I don't think y-acute is an unsolvable problem. Cross-linguistically,
the acute is also the better choice of accent. If we must have accents
for these words at all. Like Dan, I don't really see what the problem
is with simply having dedh and dydh.
