Thanks, Richard, I use your notes a lot, no problems now that I have
ditched Office 2000. I have tested Tamil, Punjabi, Hebrew, Russian,
Chinese etc. etc. in my browser and it all looks so great on one
webpage. Bengali is on my list for next year. The inscript keyboard
works well for me too now that I know what it is. The children
still won't use opentype font or the inscript keyboard but I have
arranged to work with native speaker adults in the fall to choose
appropriate input methods.
