In the poll, the dots were above the n, although a little to the right. In the poll results, they are to the right and on the baseline.

After adding a few more fonts to get my score up, I can now see them as David St Hubbins intended.

(Yet clicking on the word then makes them separate off from the n. Weird.)

Interestingly enough, the 'ṋ' (n with circumflex underneath) is showing me the subscript circumflex without the 'n'. On the other hand, the 'ƞ' (n with a long right leg) doesn't show the long right leg - it shows something really quite similar to a roman 'n', but humped up a little like a hyena. So I didn't mark it, though on consideration, I suspect I am seeing it correctly.

Interesting poll, thank you. Though I was a little surprised not to be able to see your Ugaritic font. I use Ugaritic on a fairly regular basis and have at least two cuneiform fonts and a transliteration font installed on my computer. I have no understanding of how the technology works, however. I usually use the Durham Ugaritic font.

I wouldn't be surprised if your Ugaritic font is a mapping of the A-Z characters, rather than the supposedly more robust Unicode which I've used above (though very few can see it). The Durham Ugaritic page seems to be off-line at the moment, so I can't be sure.

So how about a follow-up post on where to get all these?

Still no tlhIngan Hol? :-)

Two notes: In the third option in the first section (Armenian), it looks like there are three characters, and I can see the third, but not the first two - I'm guessing there's some overlap with some other font.
My answers are from Ubuntu, and as far as I recall, I haven't specifically installed any extra other-language fonts (except maybe Chinese/Japanese).

Hmm, I obviously mistyped the Armenian. It should look just like this - Ն - but I agree, there's something odd happening on the left. Possibly has to do with the circumstances which led to me forgetting to include Arabic.

Those dots were at the baseline on the right of the n, but they jumped on top of it as I clicked the submit button!

One of the joys of livejournal is that you can always re-vote!

What's the Mongolian alphabet then? I always thought Mongolian was written in a modified Cyrillic alphabet.

If I knew how to, I'd have Runic font installed, but yeah!
