    Currently the problem is w.r.t. IE browsers, MS Word, PPT etc.,
    When ZWNJ is used, a dotted circle shows up.

    In order to avoid the dotted circle for making unligated u, uu matra
    consonants for Tamil, the Standard has to have a section
    explaing the orthographic variation. Just like in Malayalam
    text section.

    Once documented Microsoft products (Word, PPT, Silverlight, ...)
    Adobe (Flash, DTP products InDesign, CorelDraw), Apple iPhone, iPad
    and all browsers (Google Chrome, Firefox and IE) should be able
    to show the unligate u,uu forms without dotted circles
    in the web, pdf etc.,
