hi dipali,

There are numerous changes needed to position/shape devanagari and other
Indic text. Additional changes are needed to support caret and selection
operations. And finally, it would depend on the nature of font that you
use (intelligent Vs dumb). To complicate matters furthur:

* Indic scripts do not have any standard (as in published/registered/
  recognized) font encoding that i know of.
* Indian language web-sites use mis-use charset tag "x-user-defined".

Please look at :

And let me know if you need additional info.
