Thanks a lot for this information but I need to understand more about
how to use U+0310. Could you give me the starting point for all these
things you mentioned ? What scripts are they ? Some of them are the word
of what scripts ?
Yakut (over the i)
Khanty-Vakh (over the a)
Kalmyk (over a, o, u)
over the h in Kabardian
small i-candrabindu (Azerbaijani) 2938
small m-c. (Indian lgs.) 1754
small n-c. (Indian lgs.) 989
capital i-c. (Azerbaijani) 230
small a-c. (Kalmyk?) 13
small u-c. (Kalmyk?) 9
Thanks a lot.
