Hello Richard,
Thank you.
I've created the text on seeing such style in Bengali magazine and Newspaper
etc. I'll get back on showing the Unicode-characters. Problem on Positioning
large and small characters might exist as the same is done by  superscript
or subscript using MS Word. I'll send you the scanned material also. By the
way, have you received my feedback on Chandrabindu.
Thanks.
Regards,
Goutam
