I was just about to send a comment on this.

I noticed that if textFont of the field is set to "Lucida 
Grande,Japanese", the unicode method I tried works.

It seems that otherwise, Revolution tries to separate the n from the 
combining character and put it outside of unicode.

It is weird using "Japanese" as the language for the font.

This now works:

on mouseUp
   set useUnicode to true
   set the textFont of field "field" to "Lucida Grande,Japanese"
   set the unicodeText of field "field" to numToChar(110) & 
   put the htmlText of field "field"
end mouseUp
