I have just uploaded to the CICA archive a set of five TrueType fonts
which might meet your needs. I believe that these contain all the
diacritics you need. If there are any missing, please let me know and I'll
include them in version 2, expected in a few months' time.
The fonts (and some Word for Windows macros which come with them)
were designed for Windows, but the fonts should work on any Mac
running System 6.0.7 or later.
The CICA archive seems to be very quiet just now: perhaps the
supervisor is on holiday. The package is still in the pending.uploads
directory, but should soon be moved to one of the accessible directories.
The package is shareware, but the price is entirely up to you, and if you
don't feel like paying anything, that's fine too.

At the request of some colleagues, I have just begun work on TrueType
fonts for Sanskrit, Pali, Hindi etc. I know very little about these
languages, so advice would be very welcome.
P.S. We had a week-long power-supply problem here and a LOT of mail
either never arrived or is still unread on back-up tapes. If any
list-member emailed me in the last fortnight, please repeat the message.
