So, one more time, explicitly for my thick head :) :

to have ta-hashanto-ta you would have


to have khanda-ta + ta you would have


and to have ta-y-ta (the conjunct)

I just wanted to make sure I understood this. Thanks for your patience in
replying. For me this is one of the more involved bits as far as
implementing bangla unicode goes.
I also hope I'm not buggging the other people on this list - I just
thought it would be of general interest to clear this point. If not, I'll
ask people individually :)

I got off the unicode mailing list because I was a bit overwhelmed by the
amount of email that was there that was not related to what I was
interested in
