  Consonants with a nukta (dot) under them (mainly for Urdu devanagari):
  k  with a dot:      q
  kh with a dot:      K

  j  with a dot:      z / J
  p  with a dot:      f
  D  with a dot:      .D
  Dh with a dot:      .Dh

  Anusvara:       .n / M / .m  (dot on top of previous consonant/vowel)
  Avagraha:       .a    (`S' like symbol basically to replace a after o)
  Ardhachandra:   .c    (for vowel sound as in english words `cat' or `talk')
  Chandra-Bindu:  .N    (chandra-bindu on top of previous letter)
  Halant:               .h    (to get half-form of the consonant - no vowel - virama)
  Visarga:        H     (visarga - looks like a colon character)
  Om:           OM, AUM (Om symbol)

  [As shown, many codes have multiple choices, example "RRi / R^i" implies you
   can use either "RRi" or "R^i"]
