Sorry, I am posting this after a long gap.

This problem is due to a small mistake in the hindi-cuni2font.ocp file.

Please go through the file there are two entries for tra

{TA}{VIRAMA}{RA} = @00XX ; and
{TA}{VIRAMA}{RA} = @00XY

The first one is for tra to be attached to other consonents and the second tra is an independent one. 

The problem is the first one should be like this :


So add {VIRAMA} to that line and it works.

Some days back I posted to some one's querry for devnagari digits. Add them also to your otp's and compile them to make ocp's.

For hindi we have to disable many ligatures also like - kra and some other ligatures (we should keep them in Sanskrit). Like wise we have to add some ligatures also like - there is no mention how to get the Om ??

Let us work on these and post me your opinion.

I am sending this to Yannis Haralambous (Omega creator) also for modifying the otp's accordingly and replace the same.
