The current Sanskrit translations (a good job) are in the Roman
script. I want to convert them to Devanagari script using UTF-8
encoding. This would be the same as the script+encoding used for
Hindi, this script is the accepted form of writing Sanskrit.

The pages for the Sanskrit translation are not utf-8 encoded. Please
mark the Sanskrit translation pages utf-8 encoded so that the
translation proceeds smoothly.

The current tags are
<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; language=sa">
<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=cp1252">

Changing them to

<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; language=sa">
<meta http-equiv="Content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

Should be sufficient.

Regards
Alok

Still no progress on this front.
Please fix this.

Hi Alok.

I tried to send you an email (at your mailjol address) but I got an
error message. So I did some digging and found another e-mail address
for you. I sent an e-mail there but never got a reply.

Anyways, good luck with the Sanskrit translation.
