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