Re: DOUBLE DANDA vs DANDA

"In Hindi, the danda marks the end of a sentence, a function which it shares with the full stop (period) in many written languages based on the Latin, Cyrillic, or Greek alphabets."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danda

The UTC is considering the question of disunifying the characters U+0964 DEVANAGARI DANDA and U+0965 DEVANAGARI DOUBLE DANDA from their counterparts in several other Indic scripts.

Currently the standard recommends the use of U+0964 and U+0965 when a danda or double danda is to be used with others of the main scripts of India. In particular, the list includes the Indic scripts that have been encoded in Unicode since Version 1.0: Devanagari (of course), Bengali, Gurmukhi, Gujarati, Oriya, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam. Sinhala also has no explicit danda or double danda separately encoded.
