There are other OpenType Indic fonts, not from Microsoft, including
freeware fonts*. There are currently more than 3,000 members of the VOLT
user group, many of them developing new fonts for Indic scripts and
languages. Most of these fonts use Mangal as a model, so they also do not
include any codepage support.

* See, for an example R.K. Joshi's Raghu Devanagari typeface, which is
freely distributed by NCST.

indifferent to it. - Terry Eagleton
