True, the net connectivity and % of population using computers/net
etc., in India, Bangladesh is low.
Unicode is useful mainly on the internet.
Next two UTC meetings are hosted by Adobe:
Hope Adobe supports Indic Unicode in the future
in more and more of their products.
InDesign, Illustrator, Freehand, Photoshop - the Adobe software
should support Indic Unicode.
Does anyone know of any plans by Adobe to
support Indic Unicode in 2007?
