emacs/unicode/chinese tone indication question

I use Emacs under multiple operating systems, but chiefly nowadays under
FreeBSD and Cygwin/Windows.

I want to use Chinese tone marks in discussing historical Chinese forms, and
by "Chinese tone marks" I *don't* mean the overhead vowel marks that are part
of pinyin, but the marks indicated by Unicode characters A700 - A707.  These
seem to have little support in the more common fonts.

I *have* managed to make these (admittedly unusual) characters visible under
FreeBSD by installing the DoulosSIL package.  But how do I do this under
Cygwin?  (I am interested in both a native Windows and Cygwin/X solution.)
