┐Convert unicode decomposed characters to unique/normal characters?

Seems that some readers can't show the unicode normal characters with combining diacritical marks (unicode 0300 to ┐036f?)

Is there a way to convert this combined characters into unique characters?

I mean about combined characters like these: "A`" (unicode 0041+0300) convert to "└" (unicode 00C0)
and so on with other symbols like "o~" (unicode 006F+0303) to "§" (unicode 00F5),"c," to "š" "n~" to "˝"... etc.

If I try to see those characters, (sending epub with Calibre with conversion), the sony350 shows the "┐?", and in kindle3 shows the character normal "o" instead of "§"... I don't know if it happens the same with other e-readers.

I don't know if there is an option, or whatever like that in Calibre that I didn't see, or if is there some other app. to do that.

Thanks in advance.

Many devices are just plain stupid (as you have found out)

Trying to massage file names would probably make them catatonic

What you need to do for ePub is embed a font that has all the characters you need.

In this particular case, Jon, it may not simply be a font issue. The actual rendering engine may not be correctly combining characters.
