HELP! Funny Characters

Hi Everyone!

I'm trying to publish an EPUB from InDesign CS6, but have a small problem with the following character:

(latin small letter d with circumflex below (U+1E13))

In ADE and on the iPad it appears as either a ? or a crossed-out block.

Any advice?

You'll need to embed one of these fonts.

Isn't there like copyright "issues" with fonts?
But I'll give it another try - maybe use a different font?
(currently using Linux Libertine)

Some of the fonts on the list Doitsu linked to are copyrighted and restricted from re-distibuting (unless you pay for a license to do that). But many on that list are released under the SIL Open Font Licence, or GPL, or other re-distributable licenses. And I see that Linux Libertine is indeed on that list, and supposedly supports the glyph you need.

Maybe there is a glitch in your CSS when calling the font?

Linux Liberine definitely supports this character and so does the unlisted free Charis SIL font, which is used in many commercial ePubs.
If this character doesn't show up, you might have to double-check your CSS and/or download the latest version from the font developer's website.

@FullCircleDesign: Out of curiosity, what language uses this character?

It's an English EPUB, but an African name.

Not sure if that helps, but if the reader software and the font support combining diacritical marks the effect can be achieved by coding "d" followed by U+032D
for example, with arial font:

I was curious too : Venda. African language as FullCircleDesign pointed.
