NB:  This Website uses "Xdvng", a dynamic Devanagari font. In order to see it fully and automatically display, any version of Netscape from 4.0 through 4.78 (not Opera and not version 6.0 or 6.1 of Netscape) may be used on a PC (not on a Mac). It is also visible using IE on a PC, but the shape of the aksharas is less elegant (and at present not every page has been provided with the code that enables "Xdvng" to display in IE). Others, users of Macs and/or Opera, may also see the Devanagari font but only by first downloading and installing it. Sources for the download include jtrans.
