    Does any have a program (or even better a set of MS Word macros) for converting text coded for the older Pali/Skt (Norman, Leeds, CSX, etc) to Unicode?

        Hi, Alan,

        There used to be a fellow around called Andy of "Andy's Pali Page"
        who did that sort of thing, but I haven't seen him around recently.
        Or his Pali Page for that matter. One thing to be aware of -- if
        it's for the web, I recently discovered there are actually several
        different methods of representing Unicode character codes in HTML.
        One method is to use a multi-byte system called UTF-8. See
        http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/unicode.html#utf-8 The other common
        method is to specify the hex value, e.g. & # 301 ; (without the
        spaces). I don't know if these choices would be relevant in a non-
        HTML application like Microsoft Word.

        Derek.

          Many thanks for your response, Derek.

          "Andy's Pali Page" is still accessible from the "Files" directory of this
          Discussion Group. He does have an introductory page there on Unicode, but
          doesn't seem to have up-graded his earlier programing work to Unicode. If I
          remember correctly(??), Windows is UTF-8 compliant (or compatible??), but
          actually I am thinking of something that would be working at a higher
          level----a set of nested macros, for example. If I do come across
          something, I report back here.

            There's a Norman -> Unicode conversion macro in the macros package
            http://dhamma.ru/paali/macros.zip . However some symbols need manual
            work.

            By the way, you can get Gair & Karunatillake wordlists from the
            Russian translation at http://dhamma.ru/paali/new_pali.zip
