Then please suggest replacements you consider to be better, and let's
make those replacements.  We are not bound by what Lynx does, we just
used that as a source.

Yes, that's what I was trying to say all the time: let's edit that
list directly.  That way, we get to see all the entries, and can
easily judge whether the method of expressing the diacritics is
consistent and looks reasonably well.

> But maybe those characters don't need to be in the list at all.

This was your proposal about generating some of the entries.  I think
it will be harder to maintain, because the effects of a change in
expressing some diacritic are not immediately evident -- you don't see
all of the affected characters.
