My apologies, I did not mean to come across that way. I cannot come up with a way to continue a quest for understanding the desire to use a marker that is not common, and the New Yorker themselves says "The diaeresis is the single thing that readers of the letter-writing variety complain about most," with out sounding attacking (which I do not want to do) so I will drop it completely. I am sorry for any problem I have caused.
I realize that I have derailed your thread so ... getting back on track ...
My understanding you would have to use the UTF-8 code for it, as you no doubt know. (see:
but I've noticed that the change can introduce false-corresponding characters in certain fonts.
Can you embed the font choice then? The letters are in the UTF-8 char set, so IMO any font that does not render them right is broken.
Not that that matters.
