How do you pronounce that?

Thanks to hildjj, the only word I've picked up from the State of the Union so far, is the word nuclear. Apparently a hard to pronounce word, but it also proves difficult to display the pronounciation in my browser.


If you have recent Unicode fonts installed, you should be able to see the above. It didn't render correctly for me, and after a bit of searching, I found the Junicode font set which contains the right glyphs for the combining diacritical marks such as the COMBINING DOUBLE MACRON, also known as U+035E.

Placing the fonts in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/junicode, running fc-cache and restarting my browser worked nicely for me.

Now if only a certain president would read this...
