First of all, if you aren't already using global_settings { charset utf8 }, you
need to do so.

But it seems that *none* of the lowercase i glyphs with diacriticals display
properly, with most of the fonts I've tried.  The newer generation Microsoft
fonts do work, though; try "cambria".

N.B. to jr:  The fonts bundled with POV-Ray are all pure nonsense outside the
7-bit ASCII range.  They are not a good test of anything.
