hello all,
i have some confusion regarding the ZWJ ZWNJ and their use wrt malayalam.

1. as far as i know half consonents are absent in malayalam. so what is
the effect of a ZWJ in between two consonents. insted of the half forms we
normally use the virama between two consonents that do not have a seperate
glyph, and this can be done by using the ZWNJ

2. In malayalam their can be two equally valid ways of representing the
glyphs of some consonent conbination. like CA+CA. is their any way of
identifying the exact glyph form.
