Re: [NTG-context] OT: Reflections on usability ConTeXt for typesetting of mathematics

2014-02-09 Thread Shree Devi Kumar
It maybe helpful for beginners if there were sample documents for
mathematical typesetting  (for the current version of context) that could
be used as a start for their own projects.

Maybe list members can contribute some for addition to the documentation
wiki.

[NTG-context] Using input maps for ITRANS to devanagari with context m-iv

2013-12-23 Thread Shree Devi Kumar
Hello All,

Xetex allows the use of input maps such as xetex-itrans for taking input in
ITRANS transliteration and converting to devanagari .

xetex-itrans package is at
   http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/xetex/generic/itrans/
.  Information is at
   http://tug.ctan.org/pkg/xetex-itrans

I am planning to use context-m-iv for some Sanskrit documents.

Is it possible to use the input maps with Context m-iv ?

Thanks,
Shree Devi

Re: [NTG-context] Devanagari in Siddhanta font with Context m-iv

2013-12-11 Thread Shree Devi Kumar
Aditya,

sarvaartha should have the r maatraa on top of va - in case of siddhanta
font when used in ConText the maatraa is not coming instead a dot seems
visible halfway on va (I am assuming that you can read devanagari) - when
you compare with Chandas the maatraa is  clearly visible. so
सर्वार्थ is looking like सवार्थ with a dot on वा

It may be a question of correctly stacking the components for building the
vertically stacked glyph (I do not know much about font design and
rendering - this is just a guess).

  ​Thanks for your reply.


 I am using a goodies file for coloring the accents.
 I am attaching that as well as a MWE tex file and resulting pdf.

 Chandas is not fully unicode compliant for some of the accents which
 are encoded in PUA,

 hence I would like to use Siddhanta which I understand is a completely
 redesigned version
 of Chandas fully compartible with Vedic Unicode


 Fonts are available from:
 Siddhanta: http://svayambhava.org/index.php/en/fonts
 Chandas: http://www.sanskritweb.net/cakram/


 Can you explain what is wrong in the output?

 Aditya

[NTG-context] Devanagari in Siddhanta font with Context m-iv

2013-12-09 Thread Shree Devi Kumar
​I am converting some ITRANS documents with vedic accents to devanagari pdf
files using Context. I tried both Chandas and Siddhanta fonts with it, I
would prefer to use Siddhanta but in some cases the display is not coming
correctly.

eg. स॒र्वार्थ॑ in
स॒र्व॒म॒ङ्ग॒लमा॒ङ्गल्ये॑ शि॒वे स॒र्वार्थ॑ साधिके।
शर॑ण्ये त्र्यम्ब॑के दे॒वि॒ ना॒राय॑णि न॒मोऽस्तु॑ ते॥

does not display correctly when using Siddhanta font but it display
correctly in Chandas.​


​Please let me know if you need more details.

Thanks,
Shree​
