The font used in Jeroen's screenshots is unfortunate. That kind of stroke is something one
would expect to see in a merged rakar form, but round-bottomed letters do not take merged
rakar forms, so there should be a floating ^ rakar form below the letter.
But presuming this diagonal stroke to be a representation, however poor, of the rakar,
then there is one halant too many in the character string. But I'm not sure exactly what
text string I am looking at.
Jeroen, in your earlier message, you posted this text string:
2008 अन्तरराष्टी्य मनोविज्ञानिक विचार विनमय् सम्मेलन में आप का रबागत है
But the text you linked to at http://www.in-nomine.org/~asmodai/hindi.txt is different:
2008 अन्तरराष्ट्रीय मनोवैज्ञानिकी विचार विनिमय सम्मेलनमें आप का स्वागत है
not only in the encoding of the troublesome conjunct in the first word, but also
The second of these text strings renders correctly on my system if I use a different
Devanagari font. The Windows Mangal font displays it in a way that is decipherable but
ugly, with the Ra resolving to a full form with halant rather than forming a rakar.
Neither font displays the first string correctly.
