> People working on windows and use sanskrit can use Itranslator, a windows

One can also use the fonts (sans98.ttf, ...) supplied with the programme
(itrans98) by Omkarananda Ashram directly in MS-Word -- but for that you
need to know the keyboard-to-font mapping. Needs a bit of practice.

I had showed itrans98 to C-DAC guys who had come to demo i-LEAP at our
institute about 3-4 years ago. They were quite impressed as they did not
have a equivalent of the on-the-fly transliteration/translation that
itran98 had as well as the Sanskrit support.
