        Dear friends,

        in response to a request from a member. I have uploaded the .kmz
        file for the satellite image. This file can be used if you have
        Google Earth installed on your computer. What you need to do is to
        download the file from the Files section, and double-click on it. It
        will launch Google Earth (if the program is not yet running) and
        load the satellite image!

        The file is located in the "Google Earth Club" folder at
        http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Pali/files/

        Alternatively, the tech-savvy guys may like to create their own .kml
        files (which is the text format of .kmz files), as follows:

        Once again, I like to remind everyone that I have not been to these
        places, and the coordinates that I use are the closest I get from
        research on the Internet. I believe that the image pinpoint the
        locations with a high level of accuracy, but I still stand to be
        corrected.

        Google Earth is available here: http://earth.google.com/

        Members who are into Google Earth, and have other interesting and
        related images, are welcome to share their files with us. Please
        make good use of the "Google Earth Club" folder.


        metta,
        Yong Peng.

          Hello Yong Peng,

          Thanks for the pictures. Its nice to see those places
          again as I was there (Lumbini, Kusinagara) last year
          and will be again in Lumbini from this September to
          April next year.

          But this mail is about the fonts program file, if you
          have a minute. I need pâli font for no other use than
          looking up the PTS on line dictionary, as the number
          of positive searches is much diminished when I use
          plain roman characters.

          Among the different font programs you list (Gentium,
          Akkhada...) is there one you advise more for that
          specific use (just typing in the PTS dictionary search
          field) ? Do I absolutely have to download the keyboard
          file as well ?

          I would also rather like one that is compatible with
          the Velthuis transliteration system.

          With Metta

            Dear Yong Peng,

            Yes it was very nice to be able to meet you in Brisbane and have some
            interesting discussions about Pali language. I was also able to meet
            John Kelly during the weekly sitting of a meditation group in Brisbane
            as well.

            It has been a bit difficult for me lately to post the solutions to
            Buddhadatta's exercises but I hope to be able soon to post them on a
            more regular basis again.

            With metta,

              Dear Jacques,

              any Unicode font is theoretically suitable for as long as they
              contain the glyphs for the ranges Latin-1 Supplement, Latin Extended-
              A and Latin Extended Additional. See this page for more information:
              http://www.tipitaka.net/forge/forge.php?article=unicode

              I have never used a Pali keyboard file, so I can't say much about it.

              Yong Peng.
