Despite the various comments made so far, it seems to me that specialist
fonts are no longer the way to go. On a new Mac with a recent System the
standard fonts which come with the Mac (and with Office) are Unicode
fonts which contain the necessary characters. So if one uses, say,
Times, then it should now be fully compatible with Windows. That does
seem to be the case for Pali. Probably for standard Classical Sanskrit.
The situation might be different for e.g. Gāndhārī. It would be
interesting to know what others have found.
