    Perhaps there is some confusion here because the use of the dotted circle
    is an explicit recommendation of the MS Indic OpenType spec, which is what
    the majority of Indian font developers are now working with. So there may
    be some confusion between what is expected in the MS spec and what is
    required by Unicode.
