Devanagari

U+0900 – U+097F   (2304–2431)

The Devanagari script is used for several languages, including Bhojpuri, Bihari, Hindi, Kashmiri, Konkani, Marathi, Nepali and Sanskrit. It is also used for writing Panjabi by Indians who are not Sikhs. You can find links to some Hindi newspapers in (non-Unicode) Devanagari at http://www.indianlanguages.com/hindi/newspapers.htm. You can see some Unicode Hindi on the What is Unicode? in Hindi page, the Trigeminal Software, Inc. (Hindi) page and the BBC World Service Hindi page. Additional Devanagari characters can be found in the Devanagari Extended range.

Microsoft Windows incorporates support for Devanagari Unicode from Windows 2000 onwards. Users of Macintosh computers running Mac OS 9 can install an Apple Language Kit that provides Devanagari support in various applications. Mac OS X incorporates support for Devanagari from version 10.2 onwards.

Devanagari Web pages with UTF-8 encoding are supported by Internet Explorer 5 (or higher) with Windows 95 (or higher), by the iCab Web browser for Macintosh, and by Mozilla and Netscape 7.
