Re: CSS styling for devanagri scripts

SIL relesed a Devanagri font called
Annapurna SIL which has a range of OpenType features. It is designed to
support  range of languages not just Hindi i.e Nepali and Newari.

It has a range of opentype features accessible via stylistic sets or via
graphite features. Details ard available at

An obvious use for opentype features would be a font supporting both Hindi
and Sanskrit and with extensive ligature support.

is how can we really alter and control them? For example if I take the
devanagri script then are there styling properties which are specific only
to Devanagri script? If yes, then could someone please brief me about it ?
Also the rendering of the font-features might be following some particular
method, which could be translated as modification of glyphs using
font-developing applications ? If yes can someone please tell me, what are
the methods used for rendering so that I can replicate it some where ?
