Ignore combining characters (diacritics, …) when {{type}}ing

This addon causes Anki to ignore all combining characters (such as diacritics) when comparing the input you give to {{type:fields}} to their intended/actual content. In other words, not entering them will no longer be faulted as error. However, they will still be shown in the "correct" line so as to not require the field to be shown twice. With the addon: Anki default / without: There's one small other change: If you don't enter anything at all, it now simply shows the field with minimal formatting. Note: This addon is either-or, which is to say ① it unconditionally runs on all decks' type fields and ② there's no partial comparison of combining characters if you do enter any.
