problems with ibus in linux

Tue, 10/15/2013 - 18:36
Usually, Harvard Kyoto uses ` for vigraha. For sanskrit input, I use ibus
tool and the language selected is Sanskrit-harvard-kyoto(m17n).
Surprisingly, ` is not mapped to vigraha and . is not mapped to ubiquitous
vertical line in sanskrit poetry. Is it a bug or some other keyboard
mappings are used

Sanskrit Sorting

Fri, 09/20/2013 - 18:21
How do you sort Devanagari text? MS Excel sorting is going wrong. Is there
a PHP or VBA script who can make Sanskrit order like in Apte's dictionary?
