    In my Windows XP, I have four keyboard layouts proposed for the Urdu language:
    "Arabic (101)", "Arabic (102)", "Arabic (102) AZERTY" and "Urdu", plus the
    keyboards for the Brahmic/ISCII transliterations in India, and the Tavulesoft
    "Urdu" keyboard layout, all of which can be added simultaneously to the language
    bar are selected from there. Isn't that enough?

    I don't see where is the issue there. May be it's only for Windows 2000 (and of
    course Windows 9x/ME which does not support easily multiple layouts, and where
    Tavulesoft Keyman is probably a good solution).
