    The ICU ISCII converter does handle the script-switching attributes. The default script (before
    encountering a script attribute) depends on the charset name you use (for example, iscii-dev vs.
    iscii-guj vs. iscii-tlg or x-iscii-te etc.) or can be set with an ICU-specific option suffix on the
    ISCII charset name itself.

    Search for "ISCII" in

    The ICU ISCII converter does not handle non-plain-text attributes like for bold text. (I think it
    ignores them.)
