Description Ujjwol 2010-11-01 01:20:34 EDT
Description of problem:
The newer unicode adds the newer block like Devangari Extended and Vedic Extensions. This is an feature request to support those unicode blocks by Lohit Devangari. This will make Lohit Devangari the first opentype font to support those blocks. And makes Lohit Devangari the first Vedic Font. ;)

This is in great need for people who want to encode the great Indian history of Vedas and Vedic Literature.

Yeah, I do agree.
It is in my plan list, volunteers are welcome for this feature.
Comment 3 Ujjwol 2010-11-01 02:41:35 EDT
Oh... I would volunteer but I don't know how stuffs work for font development. If you could make some tutorial and examples, I would surely volunteer.
