A space followed by a dependent vowel sign should display just the
dependent vowel sign, no dotted circle. Indeed, (except for a "show
invisibles" mode, or a "character chart" display mode) no (Indic or other)
text that does not contain the *character* DOTTED CIRCLE should ever
display a dotted circle as part of the displayed text. Systems that
do display a dotted circle (in normal display mode) where there is
no such *character* in the displayed text are buggy!
(B.t.w. the chart dotted circle glyph for combining characters
look a bit different from the (normal) glyph for DOTTED CIRLCE.)
