Problems are related to phonetic method . Link for key map has been corrected.earlier at comment#2 wrong link had been given by mistake.

I support this bug and i think this should be fixed as soon as possible.

suggestions/notes for developer to achieve solution :

  1. key stroke n+g in quick succession may render hexadecimel code 0A19 for gurmukhi letter ghangha ਙ

2.less used in text key @ or any other suitable spare key may render hex code 0A5E for representing gurmukhi letter pha ਫ਼
3.hex code 003F should be dropped from presetly being rendered additionaly in following keys:
A.key fullstop . should render hex code OA3C only to output nukta ਼
B. key back tick ` should render hex code 0A4D only to represent viram
C. key ~ should render hex code 0A71 only to represet adak ੱ

Additional suggestion to another related rendering problem:
Key e+i in quick succession should render hex code 0A07 to represent Gurmukhi character ਇ to solve problems of browser change which results presently from splitting the character into two parts ੲ and ਿ.
