Devanagari Sanskrit Font

Siddhanta font

NEW!! This is the font I am now using in AK Aruna Vedanta Documents and Sanskrit Dictionaries. The ArshaNet font below has been discontinued as of the start of 2017. The Siddhanta was created and provided freely by its author, Міхаіл Баярын. His webpage is here: http://svayambhava.blogspot.in/p/siddhanta-devanagariunicode-open-type.html

I have selected the "Siddhanta1" version of the font as it uses the more contemporary version of the vowels 'a', etc. This font as of January 2017 can be directly downloaded below.

Arsha font (old, retired version - no longer used here as of 2017)

OLD, Retired update to Arsha font. I've had discovered the older Arsha font was not properly behaving in certain browsers--allowing line breaks in the middle of words. To address this issue, A new (Feb 2014) Arsha font called ArshaNet has now been developed. All web documents from AK Aruna will now be in this new ArshaNet font.

ArshaNet font differs also from the older Arsha font in that it provides the normal English, Latin, and other font characters, missing in the old Arsha font, meant solely for the Devanāgarī font. As a result only this one ArshaNet font is required to show English, Sanskrit transliteration, and Devanāgarī characters.

Technically, the ArshaNet font uses the Unicode range of 0x1400 to 0x14F1, a range available for certain Canandian Aboriginal Syllabics. I tried to not use an existing defined range. The freely clear Unicode range of Private Use was tried, but Microsoft IE uniquely did not respect that range and line broke on every one of the characters! IE is famous for numerous web coding reasons such as this.

If you want to freely download any of these Sanskrit documents in the above Free Docs menu list, typically Right-Click their file link and select Save File/Target. Copy/Paste from the displayed document will usually not work.

You might need the Devanāgarī font installed on your computer.

Do you already have the ArshaNet font? If you don't know whether you have the font installed or not then see if the following is in Devanāgarī or is gibberish: ᑃᐘᑞᐂᑅᐂᐂᐠᐂᑜᐌ. Click on the four links below to download all four ArshaNet fonts from Upasana Yoga.

Do you already have the older Arsha font? It is still in circulation by many writers. If you don't know whether you have the font installed or not then see if the following is in Devanāgarī or is gibberish: ÙøªøéøÌ}YªøûÇøø. Click on the two links below to download both Arsha fonts from Upasana Yoga.

These older Arsha fonts are the latest version as of November 2013. HTML texts with Arsha font requiring one character to be changed (the 'gh' character as part of a conjunct consonant underneath a guttural 'n'). This will not affect the display of older texts using Arsha font. Reinstall these fonts if your previous version is older.

After downloading install on your computer. Typically this is by opening the file and selecting an Install option.

jQuery library

The jQuery library (just 94KB) is a set of JavaScript subroutines. A few of these subroutines are used in these documents to handle the Show/Hide of all the vocabularies and Sanskrit anvayas without having to click every individual one. Look for the link on jQuery.com page for "Download the compressed, production jQuery 1.11.0", or a later version than 1.11.0 can be used as well. It should just be "jQuery 1.X" and the "production" version. It is typically the first Download link on their page.

The jQuery library file should be stored in the same directory you store the downloaded Sanskrit Documents. They will fine the library from the same directory they run from.
