The tags you suggest will work; the problem is coming up with a regular
expression that captures the appropriate cases, since the ones I want to
tag for the font without the script (Bengali characters in isolation, that
is bounded by whitespace with no Bengali characters on the other side of
the whitepace) are a subset of the ones I want to tag for the font with the
script (sequences of Bengali characters, possibly including internal
whitespace).  I think I know how to do it, it's just not "clean."
