The Unicode development forum unknowingly missed some of the character representations in Devanagari. The vedic accents also did not get accomodated comletely. Developers of very popular Itranslator software from Omkarananda Ashram and others felt that these drawbacks must be corrected by collective efforts. If you are "interested in supporting an effort to get Vedic Accents included in the
Unicode Standard" click at Omkarananda Ashram Himalayas - Vedic Accents and participate. It also includes a long list of vedic accents, with bibliography, seen in the printed books and handwritten manunscripts.

Additional notes on Vedic accents are given in www.sanskritweb.de, Proposals to encode Vedic characters in Unicode system by Michael Everson, and Indic Scripts and Languages section of FAQ at unicode.org.
