The ẹ and ọ characters have their accent marks rendered incorrectly on device.  For example, ẹ́ ẹ̀ ẹ̄ all have the marks at the top rendered at the bottom instead.

This can be observed by visiting http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yoruba_language with the browser, or with the keyboard that is in progress at bug 1114863.

Patryk, is this something you can help look into? Thanks.

This is a defect in the GPOS 'mark' support in the font; these characters lack the proper attachment rules to place accents above.
