Well, I think it's banned by WTT (wing thuk thi 'runs everywhere') 2.0, but
that wasn't officially endorsed by even the Thai government, let alone

Thanthakhat functions as a 'tone mark' ('register mark' would be a more
accurate description, but the Chong headings use the Thai word /wannayuk/ in
an indigenised spelling) in the recently developed Thai-script Chong
orthography. I can't find the precise combination in the scant materials on
the web, but if you look at the Chong vowel and tone chart on p21 (tones
only on p22) of
it's hard to see any reason why the combination should not occur. There's
a fuller description of the language available via
I've only glanced through it. This description does not seem to use any
orthography for Chong, merely transcription.
Does Vista allow the combination?
