In terms of other future support i.e. post 1.0 - there's a lot we could do such as the following:

That's good to hear.

I really need to figure out more about this topic. The diacritical marks I use aren't common at all, and I'm not even sure they're part of any language I know of. They exist, however, and in some programs/fonts, I can display them without a problem, while in others they appear only in a weird font/size, and in others still they don't appear at all. Sadly, I don't even know where to begin to look for information on this sort of thing. I'm not even sure what I'd search for in Google... character encoding?

It's times like this I wish I just wrote regular old fiction, where things didn't have fancy letters and names didn't get any more complicated than Bob or Sam. *sigh*
