    OK, so what he's saying is that he can't get all the characters he
    needs for the three? (One wonders what he needs.)

    FWIW, Mac OS X 10.3 has full support for Sanskrit, including a
    keyboard. (This is, of course, on the OS level. Individual apps may
    not support it.) If he can get a full Unicode-based Etruscan or Linear
    B font, that will work in any Unicode-savvy application as well. We
    don't provide one with the system.
