This is now handled mostly with positioning of the rakar, together with a chain that picks the kind of rakar sign.

Should also test rakars on ligatures -- one thing at a time though.

Several rakar combinations are missing from the range.

nyra ssra shra sra
yra lra llra hra

I think some form of rakar should be put on each consonant. For most it's just a diagonal stroke. For a few, there is a special below-form that looks like an upward-pointing arrowhead. A few otehrs require a ligature to accommodate the rakar form. These are:

special ligature:
ka jha nna ta da* pha sha sa ha
arrowhead below form:
nga cha ja tta ttha dda ddha

  • the da looks like it takes a below-arrow, but is very altered

Note: there is no 'rkrf' table for Gujarati in FF, although it works just like Devanagari.
Really this needs a re-work.
