    And, unsurprisingly, the answer from analogy with Burmese kinzi (Burmese NGA
    forms conjuncts with following consonants much as Devanagari RA does) would
    seem to be 'No!'. (My example, at , is
    possibly suspect. To see it properly requires two SEAsite fonts. Hack
    fonts, I'm afraid, but is there yet any alternative for use with pure
    Windows software?) If RA did become REPHA, what could the purpose of the
    ZWNJ be?
