Tibetan ?

I cannot read Tibetan per se.
But i have been translatiing some things,that are relatively easy, save one letter/syllable.
So I do not know the rules of the language well enough, to get what this one thing is .

Here is one of the better alphabet tables for U-Chen script ,that i have found on line.
http://www.omniglot.com/writing/tibetan.htm

The letter i have i have is the one for "ga" ,on the top line of the first series of Consanants .Except ,it has one of those little sideways "nines" over it.
(you can see them over some of the letters in the numerals section.)
I see it in tibetan text quite a lot ,over letters ,that are not numbers,but i do not know how it changes the pronounciation or meaning.
Does anyone know how this works ? I would be very grateful to have it explained to me .
