    Dear Mark,
    Thanks for your mail. I want to know about the prposed update regarding how
    much and what kind of suuport the new (and the old) product is giving to
    I sent 3 mails to Paul of Microsoft regarding their support to Bangla.
    Unfortunately nothing happened.
    One of the major problem for Bangla is that we have to type something from the
    keyboard which is not in the code and save it from the code list. These
    characters are pronounced after the words but typed before the word.
    One solution given by somebody is to change the way of writing-I believe
    OpenType has followed this solution.
    But I think the best solution is to keep peoiple writing in their own way and
    solving by the Uniscribe.

    Looking for a reply.
