Udvarius, as you've discovered, most fonts do not support creating an « M»
via a compose key ; generally speaking it's easier to use such a key to
place a bar over a vowel than a consonant. But there's no need for the OP
to restrict himnself to a certain font ; rather than using the compose key, *in
LibreOffice* one can use the «bar over» button to produce such characters,
as per the instructions in my first reply above to the OP. Moreover, one
can easily copy such a character and paste it into, e g, an epost message ;
that is how I am able to write «M» in this reply....
