at Sarai, there's been a discussion on expanding the reach of devnag
LaTeX. One of the ideas is to get LyX to support devnag. AS we know, LyX
is a WYSIWYM GUI for LaTeX.
This means getting the user to type in devnagari using a key-layout
like traditional WYSIWYGs. A different screen font (as available with X)
could be used for this. Thus, we could get the quality of LaTeX at the
backend and native input at the frontend. I know, this may mean less to
some of us used to velthius transliteration but I think it will be
useful. Many technical issues will be involved.
What is the lists feedback? I suppose discussion on this should
continue over the long-term on devnag-general or developers channel. I
need some technical inputs also.
