    When these combinations are written in dbu-can script, as they
    are here ,the problem may not look too bad. - However in
    semi-cursive and cursive forms of Tibetan script subjoined
    vowels are completly connected with the preceeding consonants -
    and the combination of consonant(s) + subjouned vowel(s) need to
    be implemented in a font as a single ligature. While the above
    headline vowel(s) can still be be a seperate combining glyph.
    Hence it is important to have subjoined vowel signs ordered
    before those which can occur above the stack.
