In font lookups, where a variant glyph form of a base character is displayed
due to the presence of a VS character, the lookups for glyph forms of
subsequent dependant vowel marks will be dependant on the variant base glyph
(as long as the base glyph substitution has been applied first). So - in
rendering - a VS character would normally affect the whole sequence.
