Unicode organization is still anti-Serbian and anti-Macedonian

Unicode is not anti-Serbian or Macedonian.

The exact level of Unicode support will depend on your operating system and
font choice. For example, on the Mac there are reasonable results with
accents. Here are examples with <q,U+0308> and <Q,U+0308>



Here is an image, in case your emailer or OS doesn't handle these well.

As to the italic, that also depends on the font support on your system.
