    From different languages (Telugu, Kannada, Sanskrit)
    example pages using Tamil script with numbered
    consonants are given:
    (Storing pdf files in computer, and then opening works fine).

    In majority cases, superscript/subscript numbers come right after
    a consonant. I've added an example like Jame Kass also.

    Richard Wordingham raised two issues:
    (a) Is a superscript/subscript 1 used? Yes, can be seen
    in Telugu book example.
    (b) In the Kannada book, தொ (த் + short o) is shown
    with superscript. Short o and short e abugidas are not
    found in Sanskrit or Hindi. But in Kannada, Malayalam, Telugu
    they are seen as they form part of Dravidian languages
    like Tamil.

    The numbered consonants 1 thru' 4 greatly help
    in round-tripping between Indian scripts. Hope the rendering
    for Unicode fonts give that facility soon.
