Thanks for the information. That was useful. I can put in some effort and
can add the Telugu scripts, if you can give me some tips...  For instance
1. I went to the above web site and copied the files and tried the example
that was given there and processed on MAC using TexShop (XeLatex),
using Devanagari. It produced a pdf file. But the ligatures are not done
correctly. Is this the way it is supposed to be or am I doing some thing
I enclosed the pdf file produced to the example, as given in the readme file
at the above link.
2. Where do I find the format specifications for the .map and .tec files
3. Where would I find the Unicode tables for Telugu, so  that I can produce
the same forms as given in your software at the link.
