OK, I'm going with that document as a standard, although it doesn't actually say it's a standard. It seems the way I did it, either encoding of the vertical-line above and right dot will work.

It would still a useful contribution here to say what you think the standard for this writing system is.

Hello Hsin-Tung,

I see in the document
linked to from the Wikipedi page the sequence
006F 030D 0358
But I don't see the marks the other way around as you proposed, with the 030D last. Is this standardized somewhere? Or is this just an accident of the way a specific font is rendered?

Let me explain our position here.

We are very eager to implement any standerd that people find useful.

We don't just copy what other fonts do. They can be used as a check, but it is strongly preferred to first follow a standard. The font is not the standard.

You could provide a lot of help here by doing the research to find what the standards are.

I need a standard document for this. Where is it described how different combinations of these marks should behave in general?

I found Pe̍h-ōe-jī (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pe%CC%8Dh-%C5%8De-j%C4%AB) have a letter that is O with vertical line and right dot above, can type as o̍͘ or o̍͘, these letters looks the same with SIL fonts, but looks different with GNU FreeFont, please fix it.

Here is letter case:
O̍͘ → U+004F U+030D U+0358
o̍͘ → U+006F U+030D U+0358
O̍͘ → U+004F U+0358 U+030D
o̍͘ → U+006F U+0358 U+030D
