I recd a .tex file from Somadeva and some
instructions: I now have much better understanding of
what needs to be done. 

Therein, I learned of the necessity of putting
\font\dnA="Devanagari MT:script=deva" at 11pt in the
preamble and then inputting text with a delimiter such
as {\dnA
अस्त्युत्तरस्यां} with
the Devanagari-QWERTY palette, and a couple of other

As a newbie learning along the way as advised by
Lamport's book, I was in need of this spoon-feeding
which I did not find on the XeTeX site.

In any event, I thank you for your work! 

What a contribution! 

I have been longing for devanag output for 2 years!! 

Thanks again!
