ANNOUNCE: Upgrade of SKT-series Devanagari font package.
In response to user requests, this package has undergone major changes:
o Accents for ALL Vedas (23 symbols in devanagari, 25 in roman).
In transliteration the *form* follows that of the nagari.
o Accent marking in colour or grey shading.
o Choice of basic character forms (21), e.g. for a .r .na.
o Wide selection of samyoga forms (70 interacting options):
a table in the documentation lists more than one thousand
samyogas together with their optional forms in devanagari.
o Range of inter- and intra-syllable spacing.
o Dynamic option selection (replaces skt.opt file).
The upgraded files are currently on CTAN in the /language/sanskrit
subdirectory. A 600-kByte 600-dpi PostScript print file of the
documentation and samples is available by anonymous ftp from:
This site is rather overloaded: you may find the Jaguar temporary
site more accessible:
