    OK, this is my interpretation of Sunil's question: He has text data encoded
    in a so-called "font encoding" (e.g. "Shusha"), and he needs to convert it
    to Unicode.

    The Linux Technology Development for Indian Languages
    ( has two ongoing projects for
    similar conversions:

            - iconverter
            - ISSCIIlib
