    Um, What was the question again? (Yes, I've lost the plot.)

    I think that Jim Agenbroad seems to have neatly come up with the
    solution, and if no one disagrees, this needs to be documented in TUCS
    or at least the Indic FAQ.

    He said that Devanagri Letter Vocalic R with Superscript Letter Ra
    (Vowel R with reph) should be encoded as "Ra + Vowelsign Vocaliic R"
    (u+0930, u+0943)
    The answer to my original question "How then would you encode a visual
    U+0930, U+094D, U+090B" wil then be: "U+0930, U+094D, U+090B of course!"
