Hi;


reason, work with Times New Roman. Anyway issue is on POV Ray treatment of some
font families.
Try this on HTML:
<style>
@font-face {font-family:pot; src: url('file:///c:/windows/fonts/times.TTF')}
div {font-family:pot;font-size:300px}
</style>
<div>


And Then this, on POV Ray:
global_settings{charset utf8}
camera{location -1000*z look_at 0}
background{color rgb 1}
text{ttf "C:\windows\fonts\times.ttf" "Ah\u00ed" 0 0
     scale 700
     translate<-580,-200>}

On both I'm using times new roman from Windows 10. HTML works properly but on
POV Ray you'll see that diacritic is ahead from "i".

So I think issue is on POV Ray. I'm using (it's anoying work) a combination of
"i" without dot and a separate diacritic: \u0131 and \u02ca.
