Where did Thomas Mack see the Devanagari codes? Maybe via the on-line charts?
I think an increasing number of people are looking at the charts on-line and
thinking that all details of usage are covered. If you look at the
introductory page to the online charts, at:
you'll see the following disclaimer:
"Don't assume that because you can see on the page Unicode's
repertoire of characters for a given script that you fully
understand the process by which those characters are used to
represent languages written in that script."
That ought to be in 24-point animated blinking type. Maybe someone could
prevail upon the webmaster to make that sentence more visible on the page.
