Group {au. au au:} 

The names for the vowel-signs are:
  {tha.w-hto: weik-hkya. auk-mris} or {tha.w-hto: mauk-hkya. auk-mris}
  {tha.w-hto: weik-hkya. rh.hto:} or {tha.w-hto: mauk-hkya. rh.hto:}
  {tha.w-hto: weik-hkya.} or {tha.w-hto: mauk-hkya.}

This group like the previous group, {. :}, has a "flag" on the middle member. However, this group has not been changed from {au. au au:}  -- U Tun Tint.

The vowels {au} and {au:} are present in both Devanagari and Bengali-script. The following are from Windows XP character map:
- Devanagari: ो (U094B vowel-sign O) and ौ(U094C vowel-sign Au)
- Bengali-script: ো (U09CB vowel-sign O) and ৌ (U09CC vowel-sign Au)
You will notice that in Devanagari, the vowel-sign follows the consonant and is not split, whereas in Bengali the vowel sign is split and the consonant is in the middle. Further more, for ো (U09CB vowel-sign O) the half-sign on the left is ে (U09C7 vowel-sign E) and that on the right is া (U09BE vowel-sign Aa). This observation had led me to compare the Burmese-Myanmar to Indian language-scripts.
