Thank you. I corrected my mistake and it works well now.
Thank you also, for the other info you gave on .map, .tec files.
I am working on the translation.

I have one more question:
Is there a simple way to find the name of a font from the .ttf file?

---
For instance, I have a valid Pothana.ttf font downloaded (onto MAC) which
works well.  I am trying to use your paradigm and say

\newcommand\ked{\catcode`\^=11
\catcode`\~=11
\fontspec[Script=Telugu,Mapping=itrans-tel]{Pothana}}

However, it complains that

Package fontspec Warning:

Font "Pothana/ICU" does not contain script 'Telugu'

This warning occured on input line 17.

I am assuming that the Script parameter requires the exact name of the font
in the font file -- right??

I believe that the font in Pothana.ttf is called Telugu -- but how do I find
that out?

Thanks for your help.
