    Nothing in the Unicode model would prevent such a thing (as well as a long
    list of "illogical strings".)

    Then, /if/ you agglomerate all the Indian scripts together, there is no
    excuse for a rendering engine to escape this.

    Of course, I cannot defend the "/if/" above, so that is pure conjecture, and
    I do not ask James or Paul (for Uniscribe) to put some of their spare
    resources to fix this ;-).
