As I just found out this morning, looking at a Hindi grammar / phonology site (I'm making a Hindi version of Latin, sort of... like Romance Hindi, but backwards). Hindi and Sanskrit (and Urdu) are similar.... Anywho, that would be D<super>h</super>, or (if you can't view HTML) D super-h. I was confused because I'm stupid and I've seen precedents for dh as a digraph. Christopher Wright Lai piluni gerno, sur esam mete. If flowers glow, everything will soon be good. (Lai, if) (pilun, flower) (gernei, to shine, -o, 3rd pl present) (sur all, every, everything, etc.) (esei to be, -am 3rd sing near future) (mete good)
