# Is there an Unicode code point for umlauts marked with a small e instead of a diaresis? [closed]

The original way to denote an umlaut in German was to write a small e on top of the umlauted letter, like in the second row of the image below. Is this form of the umlaut availabe via Unicode? In LaTeX, you can use the package `yfonts` and then the command `\*` to get such an umlaut, but I am not sure whether there is a regular codepoint for letters umlauted this way.

I think, this is a bit offtopic, but since I don't know where to post this, I post it here because I find tex.SE the place where the people are most likely to answer this question.

`a`+ `U+0364 COMBINING LATIN SMALL LETTER E` = aͤ. Font support is another question. – Caramdir Jun 7 '11 at 18:59
