Hoi,
Recently the Unicode consortium published its latest standard. Among them
where additions to the Devangari script. As I understand it, the new glyphs
are technically supported in MediaWiki.. MediaWiki does not care; it just
stores the values. I KNOW because I have been told that there are issues
with the technical support of your languages in MediaWiki. It is very much
needed to find the best possible fonts. At the same time I urge you all to
publish all the known issues for your languages at the language_issues page
on Meta.

You can also help yourself by following the example that exists for Telugu
and provide us with a sorted list of all the characters for you language.
This will then be inserted in the "advanced toolbar" of the Usability
Initiative. A list for Devangari, Tamil, Kannada ... would be most welcome
!!

As I published on all Wikipedias, we REALLY want to know if there are
cultural aspects in MediaWiki that make it less usable. There are two parts
to this question; obviously a lack of localisation will make the software
unusable. However, it is not a given that even with the best localisation
there are no issues left. Please help yourself by localising the "Usability
Initiative" software once you finished the "most wanted" messages. Please
report all the issues that are left at the usability_issues page on Meta.
Thanks,
      GerardM
