How to type
Look for the character and indicate it. If you do not find the character, press the Next for more predicted characters.
For conjunctions, put the Halant/Virama shown in red in between the consonants.
These are all according to standard Unicode rules for digital input of Tamil but you have to grow familiar.
Note that the matra (a dependent vowel is always entered after the consonant even though it may be actually occuring before in form). That is merely typography, not orthography.
Did you know, kshya is actually only a conjunction.
