When Medial Ha is combined with the Vowel Sign UU, the Vowel Sign UU shifts to the side. In handwriting and well-printed books, all three are underneath the initial. I understand that putting them to the side was a result of a lack of key on typewriters, and poor access to the combined glyph in the Win-family fonts.

It's good to have a variant of all three underneath the initial but that is more a matter of taste.

    I posted this feature request on behalf of Nance.

    In handwriting, some people (including me :) prefer to write Vowel Sign UU on the side in long form. We will add a variant so that user can choose in advanced AAT applications, may be in 0.8 release.
