Actually, Apurva just did explain it.... and since she comes from a
typography background she did explain how the whole problem can be handled
via fonts. :-)

However, it cannot currently be handled by Unicode. You must choose the
proper font to display NNA AI, NNNA AI, LA AI, or LLA AI. The Monotype font
and Latha in Windows 2000 are the way that my client got both display types.
