    I could have indeed, I actually kept it like this just to show some
    apparent limitations in common tools ;-) This being said, calling for
    bitmap conversions seems to betray an underlying problem.

    For instance, it is not possible to visual select only the split vowel
    in Powerpoint, or BabelMap for that matter (the whole syllable with its
    surrounded consonant gets selected). But a single backspace when the
    cursor is positionned at the end of the Tamil syllable does delete the
    split vowel surrounding the consonant (ka).
