About the Devanagari GIF You Just Clicked:
from Apple's Forthcoming
Indian Language Kit

Revised site note 1/26/10: Apple's Indian Language Kit has long since launched, so the links there are kind of out of date. Thanks again to Apple for letting vedavid.org be a test site. This page is otherwise left as it was originally with minor modifications to font and background color for ease of reading. The new site launch is available here. Navigation links at the bottom follow the original old pathways through the site.

Apple's Indian Language Kit (ILK) is now in its Beta testing phase. I've been using it on my website for several months. It will enable full devanagari to be used, with HTML, over the Net-- as well as full search and retrieve, spellchecking, and other conveniences. Currently the accents for Vedic are not included, though it is possibly a task I will undertake after I complete my dissertation.

The GIF on which you just clicked (if you came here from the vedavid site) was made in Novell's WordPerfect 3.5, and captured with PICTify, a handy little screen capture extension which enables sizing and placement of an image from any application. Among other things, it enables Devanagari, Gujarati, Hindi, Pali and other language scripts to be used over the net, and with HTML. For more information E-mail me: atman@vedavid.org to learn how to access this powerful Indian Language Software. The image below is from Apple's Developer web site, click on it for a general-access summary.

I used a screen capture to get this summary of Apple's ILK objectives, so the "slide" links don't work. You'd need the password anyway.
