Using BabelPad on Windows 10, with the sequence <0531, 0532, 0533, 055F> (ayb, ben, gim, abbreviation mark), the following fonts show the abbreviation mark correctly over the gim: Calibri Cambria Cambria Math Nishiki-teki Trebuchet MS All of these except Nishiki-teki are standard Windows fonts. This is a small percentage of the number of fonts that have all four of these Armenian glyphs, but show the abbreviation mark as a spacing glyph. It looks like Unicode is right, Wikipedia is right, and the fonts are wrong. -- Doug Ewell | Thornton, CO, US | ewellic.org
