Dear Fantasai and All,
To my best knowledge, the rules for determining first-letter and the rules
for determining breaks in upright vertical text may not be the same for
Indian Languages. Indian Languages are completely syllabic one and that is
why we need to break only syllable-wise.
Thanks and regards,
Goutam
