NOTES:
It should be ascertained which of U+OD8E, U+0D8F, U+0D90 is used to
represent Sanskrit E and AI. I have not had access to any texts here in
Sanskrit or Pali in Sinhalese script, and would appreciate it if anyone
could forward to me specific information regarding equivalents and/or
sample texts so that I can check to see if there are errors.
(Unfortunately, such resources do not abound in Ireland.)
