    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.)
