Here is an almost immediate confirmation of my hunch that this is a platform issue. While the message showed the virāma on my iPhone, it does not do so on my MacBook Air.

Go figure …

Dear indologists,
We noticed a quirk in the display of puur.n virAma (i.e. in the Sanskrit Library phonetic ascii encoding pUrR = KH pUrN) in Devanagari and wonder whether anyone has seen this display properly in a webpage with the proper characters.  Here is the Devanagari qwerty input:

पूर्ण This is p U r f N
पूर्ण् This is p U r f N f

As you can see they are identical.

पूर्ण्‌् This is p U r f N f f f
Finally the virAma displays, but it should not require three virama characters to do so.
Thanks for your help.
