And do deletions also happen on the whole syllable cluster? This does
seem to be the case in MS Word 2003 for Tamil (with this syllable கோ) or
Devanagari (क्षि), where one can delete a single character (even a split
vowel) but not select it... Somehow, I find this asymmetrical.
Interestingly enough, Firefox as I type this message and press
Shift+right arrow to select characters, shows the individual Devenagari
or Tamil. In this way, one may stop the selection where one wants in the
syllable... I find this clever, although if I change the selected text's
colour and unselect the text, the Tamil split vowel no longer surrounds
its consonant and the Devanagari letters no longer form a conjunct.
