Ah! How do you do that?
Or do you mean "would/should" instead?

I am not aware that Netscape, even in version 6, is able to
display Indian sentences encoded in Unicode (although it is
able to display individual characters). The problem is in
the rendering (displaying) of the conjuncts, and the reordering
of the left-positionned matra's.

Keyboard layout is unrelated to the problem.
You can use whatever you want (or are comfortable with).

However, you certainly need a Unicode-able editor. Very few of
them are Indian-enabled (Microsoft are the best choice, but are
not the cheaper, particularly since it pratically needs Win2000).

There are very few Indian "Unicode" fonts for the moment.
And even less work with X11/Linux.

In fact, I am not aware of any such a font. Which is the main
reason why I ask the questions above.

What do you mean with display setting?
The display setting is on the the client side. You are not going
to have any form of control on this setting... (and no, I do not
like browsing a web site and encountering a page that says
"please, change over all your settings in order to browse my
site"; actually, I often switch away).
