I installed and used "devnag" package to get output in Hindi, just out
of curiosity, as it is not my requirement. Though I have never used
Hindi or any other regional language, but it is my feeling that
"phonetic based entry" should be bad as compare to normal way of
typing because it seems un-natural to type Hindi in English. Anyhow, I
experimented little with dev and found it is very difficult to produce
what you want using preprocessor. Rather it is easier to type directly
in tex file and no need to use pre-processor.
I tries to get my name in Hindi. I failed to get using preprocessor
after a large number of trials, but I could get it while working in
tex file directly with much less number of trials.
"Hardeep Singh Rai" will be written in tex as "hrdFp Es\2G rAy"
What is the experience of other list members.
A computer program will always do what you tell it to do but rarely
what you want to do.
