ANNOUNCE: Article on Vedic Accents.

In designing the SKT-series of Devanagari fonts, I found it 
very difficult to get hold of basic information regarding
Vedic accentuation (both the symbols and their significance).
The information that I have managed to gather is presented 
in a short article which discusses the accent changes that 
arise in continuous speech (sa.mhitaa), their pronunciation, 
and the various systems of notation.  It is available at:

It is a 100-kbyte Postscript file that runs to six pages.

Comments, corrections, additions, etc. are most welcome.
