The Vera font has glyphs for most diacritics; the hardest will be the
drawing of the whole new glyphs schwa, ohorn, uhorn, eng (all in lower and
upper case of course).
Special care is needed for the ogonek (there is a page that explains
that quite well; I don't remember its url, but searching after
"polish", "ogonek", "acute accent" and "font" should give it).
and for vietnamese there is the problem of the double accent placement.
