Figure 4 & "The use of combining diacritic marks creates many variations for an underlying letterform"

Not sure what is the intent of fig 4. If it's to show how a font has to cater for variation in placement and shape of glyphs, it might be better to use examples of tone marks in Thai and medial consonants in Burmese, etc. I can supply examples if needed.

This would also introduce the idea of complex scripts, which I thought was lacking in this section.
