” Those responsible for assigning Unicode values to Indian languages had known about the complexity of rendering syllables. But they felt that the assigned codes correctly reflected the linguistic information in the syllable and so suggested that there was no need to assign codes to each syllable. It would be (and should be) possible to identify the same from a string of consonant and vowel codes (Just as syllables are identified in English). What was specifically recommended was that an appropriate rendering engine or shaping engine should be used to actually generate the display from the multibyte representation of a syllable.”
