** Bug description from Wikimedia Bug
There is request from a Punjabi user mentioning that the letter that key N
produces is wrong in Gurumukhi Inscript layout in Punjabi Wikipedia. Now the
key N gives ਲ਼ (dot is after the character).
But accoring to him the dot should appear before character. Could you verify
this. I have checked the Redhat Punjabi Inscript layout and few other images
available on the web http://bit.ly/MXycoj. In many places it is as per current
The one place I saw an image as per user's suggestion is here
http://www.5abi.com/dosh/fontU-dnld2.htm Could you verify this and update the
Gurumukhi Punjabi layout as per the accepted standards.
As per unicode chart:http://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0A00.pdf
it is on right side
TDIL side has middle of that: http://tdil.mit.gov.in/pdf/Vishwabharat/tdil-april-2002.zip
Is there any Govt Referecnce? also would you like to add Wikimedia Bug link?

thanks Aman for pointer.
Srikanth, yes we need some valid reference and in this case again we need to talk with Unicode.
Thanks Alam, Pravin. Yes looks like a change is needed in Unicode document clarifying the positioning. I will ask the original filers for references
