Introduction to Indic Scripts
Richard Ishida - World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
This paper begins by reviewing the special characteristics of 'indic' scripts, and then briefly examines some of the practical issues that should be borne in mind for Unicode-based implementation of these scripts. Scripts covered include Devanagari, Bengali, Gurmukhi, Gujarati, Oriya, Tamil, Telugu, Kannada, and Malayalam.
This is a short tutorial aimed at providing a foundation for the talks that follow in the South Asian Scripts track.
