      That's attested in the Edwin Lodham's Manuscripts, DTS 50 and 51, and
      it's interesting that they don't show the same tengwar-tehtar order.
      DTS 50 has: 1st tehta above, 2nd tengwa, 3rd tehta below; DTS 51 has:
      1st tengwa, 2nd tehta above, 3rd tehta below. You may call it "less
      orthodox", but only because that's a rather unusual mode, not because
      it were not attested.
