Thanks David.

I'll deal with this once I complete a big outstanding issue in Malayalam.

In all twelve fonts, U+A789 MODIFIER LETTER COLON looks identical to U+003A COLON. According to https://www.unicode.org/L2/L2006/06259r-mod-letters.pdf#page=7 “Compared with a typical colon glyph, the dots of the MODIFIER LETTER COLON should be closer together, and the side bearings should be narrower.” Figures 5 and 6 show different ways of distinguishing U+A789 from U+003A.
