[INDOLOGY] Indication of Case

Dear all.

Today I stumbled upon a remark that caught my attention. Hermann Brockhaus
mentions that in good, carefully written Indian manuscripts the case
relation between members of a compound is often written above the words
with a numeral corresponding to the case in the usual Sanskrit system
(prathamā vibhaktiḥ, etc.). I have not seen this before, but I have not
read all that many manuscripts. Does this ring a bell for anyone?  The
original text can be found here
is also pasted below but will perhaps not come through. The reference is:
p. 18, Ueber den Druck Sanskritischer Werke mit lateinischen Buchstaben von
Hermann Brockhaus, Leibzig, 1841.

Many Thanks,
