Re: [iip] Should drop initial styling highlight aytam alone? (#59)

Now I see Muthu’s sentence “There are no Tamil words that start with aytham.” was meant to emphasize native words. Which is true. But let’s just note the usage of ஃ as a prefixed modifier for consonant letters (mostly for ப) to represent loanword sounds is very common, and loanwords are everywhere in real world texts.

Also note, it’s unclear if ஃ’s usage in classical Tamil texts (which seems to be only between two syllables) is considered to be depending on its preceding cluster (written syllable) or its following cluster.
