Replacement glyph and ODT/PDF demonstrating change

Description of problem:

Currently the glyph for 0960 Devanagari Letter Vocalic RR (double RR) in Lohit Devanagari is similar to glyph for 090B Devanagari Letter Vocalic R (single R) from Unicode Devanagari Chart http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0900.pdf. Reference code chart for correct glyph of 0960. Please see attached PDF document for comparison with Sanskrit 2003 and Windows XP Mangal font.

As seen in Unicode chart and other fonts, the correct glyph of 0960 should have two hooks at bottom right to differentiate from 090B. 090B can either have one hook as seen in code chart and other fonts, or just a belly with no hook at all as seen in current Lohit Devanagari.

To be more clearer, while the glyph for 090B in code chart and other fonts is shown with one hook, the form shown by current Lohit Devanagari for 090B is also acceptable as a glyphic variant. However, the glyph variant of 090B with one hook should not be used for 0960.

Hence the current glyph of 0960 in Lohit Devanagari should be corrected.

I have devised a replacement glyph for 0960 showing two hooks as per the code chart as well as in line with other fonts. (Glyph for 090B need not be replaced as the current glyph is an acceptable variant.)

Please replace the current Lohit Devanagari 0960 glyph with this new glyph. Thank you.
