    I forgot to add that even in the Yajur Veda, the anudatta mark is placed
    on digits. Attached are examples from the Grantha book:

    Taittiriya Brahmanam, Heritage India Education Trust, Chennai, India, 1980.

    Page numbers are in the filename of the attachment.

    I do not have the Devanagari books on hand to provide proper photos for
    Devanagari. The texts in Devanagari corresponding to the above: p 5 line 13 p 7 line 10

    are not rendered properly precisely because rendering engines do not
    support the addition of svara marks to digits. This edition also has
    digit 3 instead of digit 2 in the latter example. Without any Devanagari
    books on hand, I am unable to say whether this is an error.
