A question about XeLaTeX and the font Devanagari MT.
In order to produce Sanskrit editions in devanāgarī script with several
layers of apparatus, I use XeLaTeX.
My font of choice is Devanagari MT, but running XeLaTeX on an input file
that calls this font does not always produce good ligatures. It sometimes
uses a virāma under the first consonant instead of joining it with the
I have found, with help from Dominic Goodall, the XeTeXglyph numbers for
almost all of the problematic cases. For example a correct devanāgarī ddva
is produced by typing \XeTeXglyph286. But these are the remaining
problematic cases I have:
Would anyone happen to know what the XeTeXglyph numbers are for these? Or
know how I could find out?
