    I'll arrange for uploading some images.
    Yes, there is X form and ksh form.
    The ksh form can be treated as conjunct equivalant, similar to PR, TR etc
    are treated conjunct equivalant.

    Engineers can find work around to all pitfalls found in Unicode. But what
    should be done is eliminate pitfalls in Unicode, that is the duty of UC.

    In English there is no ZWJ or ZWNJ. That is a duty performed well by UC.
    Infact VV is an example of discrimination by UC. If VV can be made single
    character, why X is not made single character in Tamil. Is it to make Tamil
    a nonTamil line tower?
    There is no conjunct in Tamil. Why UC and Microsoft insisting on changing
