    Hi Michael,

    In the Malayalam Cillaksharams context I wanted to ask about the
    representation of one more conjuct - 'nta' (as in 'mint'). This
    character will look like a '.ra' below cillak.saram of 'na'. As per my
    understanding I would encode it as NA + VIRAMA + RRA + VIRAMA + RRA.
    But, is this correct?
