Is it at all possible to typeset text in Esperanto language (with LuaLaTeX) using Adobe Garamond Pro font? After some research and testing it appears there is no way to do this, that some characters (such as ĉ, ŭ, ĥ) are simply missing and impossible to create even with composite commands (like \^ c).

Or is there a way around it? Thanks in advance for any help!

Edit Upon request adding MWE:

%%%! lualatex

\def\fontBaseName{adobegaramondpro}
\def\fontBaseNameBold{agaramondprosemibold}

\documentclass[11pt,twoside,openright]{book}
\usepackage{polyglossia}
\setdefaultlanguage{esperanto}
\setmainfont[BoldFont={\fontBaseNameBold}]{\fontBaseName}
\begin{document}
Antaŭparolo

Ĉi-loke estas kaj fariĝis ŝoseo estas ŝtopita teĥnike
\end{document}

The result: enter image description here

    I don't have the font so can't test, but do you mean it doesn't have the ^ accent at all? (you could take one from another font) – David Carlisle Jul 30 '17 at 12:13
  • @DavidCarlisle: it does have the accent, however if I try e.g. this \^ o \^ g \^ h I get ô g h, in other words it puts the accent over o but not over g and h. – Marcel S. Jul 30 '17 at 12:18
  • Please show a minimal example of what you try to compile. – TeXnician Jul 30 '17 at 12:23

    also show the full log for your test file, recent latex releases have tried harder to avoid problems in this area, so it depends on which version you have – David Carlisle Jul 30 '17 at 12:26

    I have the font and it clearly reports "there is no 0302" (that's the accent) and similar for the accented glyphs. – Ulrike Fischer Jul 30 '17 at 15:04
