The material on this website was created using a unicode compliant Devanagari font. Unicode is a 16-bit encoding standard that allows all characters of every major language in the world to be represented. Unicode is platform independent, meaning if you typed something in Windows, it would appear the same way on a Macintosh machine. Most modern systems have built-in unicode support and often require nothing more than a unicode compliant font for any particular language.

If you can see the following sentence, then your computer should have no problems viewing this site:

हिन्दी भारत की राष्ट्रभाषा है | (Hindi bhaarat kii raashtrabhaashaa hai .)

If you cannot view the sentence above, try chaning the font encoding to "UTF-8" in your browser. Most users should find this option by going to View > Encoding.

If you still are not able to view the sentence above, please try following the suggestions for your particular operating system.

Windows

Enabling support for Indian languages (Indic) on your computer
Windows XP
Windows XP has inbuilt Indian languages features. If you enable these features, you will be able to view the Hindi pages much better. You must have at least 10 MB of free hard disk space and the Installation Disk of Windows ready, before starting. Please close any open programs.
1. Go to Control Panel (from the “Start” button)
2. Go to Regional and Language Options
3. Click the “Languages” tab
4. Check (click) the line marked “Install files for complex scripts and right to left languages (including Thai)”
When you check this line, a new window will appear, which will give a list of languages that will be installed. This list will include ‘Indic’. It will ‘warn’ you that you need at least 10 MB of hard disk space. Click OK to close this window. Then click OK on the Regional and Languages Options window. You will be asked to restart your computer.
You should be able to view the Hindi text on this site now.

Windows 2000

Macintosh

  • Mac OS X (and above)
    - Unicode support is built in and you should have no problems. Advised to use Safari web browser. Note, site was tested on OS X - Panther, prior versions of OS X should also work with appropriate unicode font.
  • Mac OS 9.x
    - Using your OS 9.x installation cd, launch the Language Pack installer and install the Devanagari pack (see link in step 3 for installation instructions).
    - Reboot and the font should display.
  • Mac OS 8.6.x
    - Same as OS 9.x except you'll be installing "Multilingual Internet Access" rather than Language Packs.
  • Mac OS 8.5.x
    - Unfortunately there is no language support provided by Apple, and seperate language packs will have to be bought.
