I take this opportunity to forward the FONTS list from the South Asia 
Gopher maintained here at Columbia, and to solicit further comments and 
feedback from everyone who uses the list, so it can be kept up to date.

LANGUAGE:  Sanskrit, Hindi, Marathi:  "Avanti," "Kashi"
PRICE:  $40.  ("I contribute the net proceeds to a student assistance
COMMENT:  "Avanti was made by me in 1985 (slightly improved in 1988)
        for dot-matrix printers; it is a considerably improved version
        of what George Hart (Univ. of California, Berkeley) had
        accomplished.  A logical assignment of Nagari letters to the
        Roman keyboard, one that speeds up typing and learning, is my
        other main contribution.  That the font prints well even on
        laser printers is something that still surprises me.  It is,
        for example, the type used for Devanagari text matter in my
        book *Sanskrit: an Easy Introduction to an Enchanting
        Language*.  The diskette also includes the Roman fonts "Ganga"
        and "Sindhu" which can be used for transliteration of most
        literary languages of South Asia" (--Author).

COMMENT:  "The two fonts, sold as a package, come in Regular, Bold,

        layout files for the system folder, which extensively redefine
        the system of dead keys.  This is particularly important for
        Jaisalmer; it includes a very large number of conjuncts for
        Sanskrit which can only be accessed through dead key
        combinations.  Extensive documentation"  (--Author).

COMMENT:  "A Truetype font.  The package contains extensive

        so many of the characters are only availible through deadkey

        to transcribe Urdu sounds.  The Roman diacritics font,
        "Manjushree-CSX," follows the CSX coding, but has a lot more
COMMENT:  "The print quality of the Devanagari fonts approximates the
        typography of Nirnayasagara press.  The Manjushree-CSX font
        looks like Times-Roman.  All three fonts are of the best

        standard format, lack of support and pertinent documentation
        vis-a-vis hardware compatibility, unprofessional designing of

        together with the consonants, which makes it a real doozie to
        type, unless one sets up an extended and complicated series of
        macros.  Another problem is that the coding for the font
        titles is not really spelled out...all come up as Truetype on
        the icon, but sometimes come up PostScript in reality. It is
        much easier to use the Ecolinguistics fonts, though they are
        much more costly.  On the other hand, these include TrueType
        Tamil, which I haven't found elsewhere, and Malayalam.  They

COMMENT:  "The fonts are ok, but there is no keyboard--you have to
        devise your own.  And there is no allowance for the
        conjunctions and triple conjuctions so common in South Indian
        languages like Kannada.  The people are nice; but the price
        (around $90) is too much, and the effort is not worth it" (--
