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.
