Ok, ok - I knew that these characters are there and I thought, they are
unuseable as long as I can't find the ligatures ("the fonts"). I
ordered the book some time ago just to understand more fully how
everything is meant, but it has not yet arrived.

Reading THIS PARAGRAPH does not mean that I already understood "the
process". So I dared to ask...
Anyway thanks to all those having answered (does anybody know of
glyph files with devanagari ligatures?),
