    Does the ICU ISCII convertesr take ATTRIBUTE code in ISCII (as defined
    in ANNEX-E of ISCII 13194:1991, page 20 to swtich between script?)
    ATR = 0xEF in ISCII
    0xEF 0x42 to switch to Devanagari script
    0xEF 0x43 to switch to Bengali script

    Not saying I like that part of ISCII or those support is needed. Just
    want to know how "complete" is the ICU converter while it deal with this
    weired specification - ISCII. (if you don't think it is "weired", look
    at the E-1 Display Attributes session in Annex-E of ISCII which is worst
    than the E-2 Font Attributes I mentioned here.)
