Indic Transliteration in Unicode

The following tables may be useful for typing Indian languages in Roman transliteration:

CSX+ characters not precomposed in Unicode. CSX+ is a character set (and font encoding) for transliteration according to ISO 15919, for which see How to Use ISO 15919. Note that (at 20/7/06) the Unicode tables there are for Unicode 3.0, not Unicode 5.0. As HTML As PDF
Indic transliteration characters as prescribed by ISCII-91 As HTML As PDF

The legibility of the HTML depends on your browser, operating system and fonts! Some versions of Acrobat Reader work better than others - Acrobat Reader 6.0 works better then 4.0, for example!

Access to Public Unicode Mail Lists There are five public lists, whose archives are all nominally password protected - username unicode-ml, password unicode:

Unicode general list
Indic Indic scripts
SE Asia SE Asian scripts (moribund)
Africa African script issues (inactive)
SE Asia Hebrew issues (inactive)

Apart from the general Unicode list, the archives are in the forms of files consisting of individual e-mails glued together by an introductory line. One way of reading the encoded mails (typically base64) is to cut out an individual mail (including e-mail headers), save it as an .eml file, and drag it to an Outlook Express e-mail folder.
