Combining Diacritical Marks Range (Unicode)
Last updated at 7:32 pm UTC on 29 August 2022

The range: 0300036F of The Unicode Standard contains diacritical marks which go after a base character.

In a combining character sequence, the base character is the initial character, which the combining marks are applied to.

For example, an (e-acute) can be represented in a string as a single run e ("\u00e9") or an 'e' followed by an acute accent ("e\u0301" in NFD). According to the Unicode standard, these two are "canonically equivalent" and should be treated as equal. [2]
