>> The code for the \XeTeXgenerateactualtext feature (it's an integer
parameter; set it to 1 to get ActualText added to the PDF, for better
copy/paste and search in Acrobat) is now on sourceforge, in an "actualtext"
branch, for anyone who wants to try building and experimenting with it.


 \XeTeXgenerateactualtext has been really useful for us in creating
searchable pdfs in Devanagari, Gujarati, Tamil etc using Xelatex. The text
can be easily copy pasted as well as saved. Thank you very much for
implementing this.

However, pdfs in these Indic scripts created by other methods do not have
this ability.

Do you know of any browsers (Chrome, Firefox) , word-processors (Open
Office, Libre Office) which support this option?

I apologize as this is a bit offtopic for xetex list.
