    Dear List,
    I wish to call your attention to a useful resource for Unicode fonts for
    various South Asian languages, developed as part of the South Asia
    Language Resource Center (University of Chicago):

    Note that there is another project, Digital Dictionaries of South Asia,
    http://dsal.uchicago.edu/dictionaries/, which allows display and
    searching entries in various South Asian dictionaries using Unicode.

    FYI: These two projects are related to a bigger collaborative project,
    the Digital South Asia Library (http://dsal.uchicago.edu/index.html),
    which makes digital materials freely available, such as:
    * Digitized newspapers, journals, general books, and pedagogical
    materials (including primers on Urdu, Bengali, Telegu, Oriya, and a book
    on Grantha): http://dsal.uchicago.edu/books/index.html
    * Statistics relating to British India:
    * Maps from the Imperial Gazeteer:
    * Searchable image database: http://dsal.uchicago.edu/images/index.html

    With best wishes,
