Hi Jayanta,

It is a known issue. It arises because these sites use multiple
dynamic fonts simultaneously and Padma doesn't merge two
successive text nodes after transforming to Unicode. So in case
a letter or conjunct is in first node where as matra in the second
node then it will show either a circle or matra (specially e-kar)
in wrong place.

Wikipedia is using standard Unicode, no transformation is needed.
