I tried this in Kate (based on QT 3, as Konqueror) and OpenOffice (based on
libfreetype2). Both give similar results: Precomposed is perfect, decomposed
displays ok (no boxes), but some accents are not visible or moved (such as
the iota subscriptum, which is no real accent).
So I’d suggest to stay with the recommendation to use precomposed, and perhaps
offer a filter to decompose (ICU) for people needing it, that could also be
activated on the website.
Most important is using the right font. My recommendations: Gentium is good,
but FreeFont (FreeSerif) is best.
