Sorry two mistakes. I dropped a letter. The standard is INSFOC. A document
can be obtained from http://tdil.mit.gov.in/insfoc.pdf
More serious mistake is about the letter PA. INSFOC does have Full PA and
and half PA. I would have been correct if I had talked about Letter Nna.
INSFOC has only half Nna.
The general principle for reducing the number of glyphs is: "majority of the
consonants are kept in their half form. The full consonant is formed by
adding a 'kana' (vertical stroke) to the half form.".( .M. D. Kulkarni,
C-DAC Pune in the paper refered to above).
