# Manually constructing a dot under accent

In my thesis I would like to have an n with the combining dot under diacritic, but unfortunately my font doesn't have that particular accent, I figured I could try to construct it ad hoc (since I just need it in a single place) from a plain n and a period. I tried various things, shifting the period down a few points and twiddling with hskips, but nothing really works.

Is there a way to do this that both looks decent as well as preserving my sanity?

# Accent macro \d

The accent \d also works with OT1 encoding:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\d{n}
\end{document}


# A constructed solution via \ooalign

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\ooalign{n\cr\hfil\raisebox{-.5ex}{.}\hfil}%
\end{document}
