[XeTeX] input method under windows

Rather than looking for an editor, I would simply add Sanskrit as a language
in the Windows system and locate a good Unicode font that supports the
characters needed for Sanskrit. That way your friend could use any
Unicode-aware text editor, of which there are many; if a TeX-oriented editor
is desired, TeXworks (now distributed with both TeXLive and MiKTeX) works
very well. Some of the older TeX-centric editors have not yet been updated
to handle Unicode. You can set up a hotkey in Windows to switch easily
between typing in different languages.
Caveat; I myself don't use Sanskrit, but this is how I handle ancient Greek.
Here's one link with more info about adding languages etc. in Windows:

I do not know anything about windows, but some friends need help and I
am wondering if there exists something like ibus under windows.
I need to help someone to use xelatex in order to produce sanskrit texts
(devanagari and tranliteration).
Is there a friendly text editor with an easy input method (easily
configurable) to produce this kind of texts with xelatex.
Thanks for any help.
