I have a Mac question.
Recent Microsoft s/w in Vista, Windows 7
natively support ISO 15919 diacritics.
Is it the case with Apple Mac OS most recent
versions? If not, we can ask that these
essential diacritics get added by Apple.
This will be important as just now
Romanisation of India's scripts gets
started as a sizable section of Indian
schools are teaching in Latin script.
Adding ISO 15919 std. to National eGovernance Plan
(NeGP) is possible. This standard is important in 3 areas
(a) Implementation of ISO 15919 for Indic text
for programming use & statistical analyses
in DB of land records, voter lists, ...
- analyses can be script based or area (e.g. districts) based.
(b) Exchange of files in ISO 15919 within India,
many know 3 or 4 languages, but not as many scripts.
(c) Mobile applications where Unicode Indic fonts
are non-existent or when a user dos not want
without rendering (e.g., when u, uu uyirmey
are shown in the well known Grantha way,
people may avoid it by choosing Latin way.)
