Sorry, I was a bit confused.
But actually I need to see both the "before and after" canonical ordering
so I know both how to write the font and handle the conversion, Thanks for

shin < regular meteg < CGJ < hataf < dagesh < shindot
The CGJ prevents the reordering of the meteg around the hataf and
dagesh, and the sequence <meteg, CGJ, hataf> gives the font
a separate sequence to ligate, distinguishing it from
<hataf, dagesh, meteg> above.
Remember the whole rationale for introducing CGJ's in the first
place is to make it possible to distinguish sequences, so they
don't both end up the same when canonically reordered. It isn't
necessary to attack the problem by taking the canonically
reordered final sequence and then looking for a place to insert
CGJ in *that* already reordered string.
