The Gurmukhi subrange is from U+0A00 to U+0A7F. This provides 128 code points for Gurmukhi characters of which only 77 are currently used (Unicode 4.0.1). Code points U+0A01 (Adak Bindi) and U+0A03 (Visarga) were not used prior to Unicode 4.0. In addition, Danda and Double Danda are contained in the Devanagari subrange at U+0964 and U+0965 respectively.
The official layout of the Unicode Gurmukhi subrange [PDF] as presented by the Unicode Consortium is available.
Mha - ਮ + '੍ਹ' = ਮ੍ਹ
The image representations should match the text representations (font differences aside) if you have a Unicode 4 compatible font and rendering engine. If you notice problems with U+0A01 and U+0A03, your font/rendering engine does not support the Gurmukhi additions for Unicode 4.
If your browser is unable to render the conjuncts, this means that it does not have complex script rendering enabled for Gurmukhi.
For U+0A33, the dot at the bottom should be on the right and not to the left.
