Classical Sanskrit (CS) & (CSX) Project

Ever want to display diacritics in your Web/HTML postings? (You are working on your own site, right?) Well this may help:

We are currently developing a collection of fonts following the Classical Sanskrit (CS) and Classical Sanskrit Extended (CSX) conventions, also known as IASS (International Association of Sanskrit Studies) conventions, in Windows True Type and Mac formats, for implemention of diacritics. Once we get the bugs out, you will be able to download the fonts from this site and install them on your local machines.


Here is a sample using the DBask CSX conventions.

This is the character set Classical Sanskrit and Classical Sanskrit Extended:
