Sanskrit Diacritics
with no Special Font Required

Posted April 16, 2004

Dear Prabhus, please accept my humble obeisances. All glories to Srila Prabhupada!

Due to the pioneering work of Bhakta Sean O'Neil Prabhu (http://www.vedabase.net/), we are now able to create Web sites containing the special Sanskrit diacritic characters with no need to install a special font! This means that the diacritics will display correctly even on the computers at your local public library!

In addition to the example of Bhakta Sean's incredible Web site, here is a sample Web page which I created using the same techniques: http://pratyatosa.com/691226IN.BOS.html

His work also inspired me to create the following two Web pages:

It's amazing how Lord Sri Krishna is constantly giving us everything that we need to serve the lotus feet of His Divine Grace Srila Prabhupada!

Hope you are well and blissful in KC.

Your servant,
Pratyatosa Dasa
