 Dear Richard/Steve
 The examples I received in email in the attachment jpg's seem to be from 
Bengali and not  Hindi. The first letter styling is quite common among 
Indian languages. We > have collected few samples for Hindi from mangazines 
which are enclosed in  > the attachment with remarks and we can therefore 
make a preliminary
 conclusion that for Hindi it applies to grapheme cluster. In my next mail 
we will send few more jpg's.
