Hosting

This site is hosted for free by ibiblio, which is a "collection of collections" and an Internet library of sorts. If you have a project about something of cultural significance, i.e. about something you could find in a library, and you are looking for a host, check the ibiblio.org Collection Criteria and see if your project could find a free home. You can read more about the project at www.ibiblio.org.

Typesetting

Devanagari text was set initially with Baraha Direct, part of the Baraha text-setting suite for Indic scripts. Baraha provides easy text-setting of Indic languages to encourage the use of Indian languages in computer programs and ensure that these languages are not left behind in the modern day. In this vein, the program is provided as freeware. You can download it at www.baraha.com. (The rest of the Devanagari has been generated by computer through a PHP-based transliteration engine.)

All English text was set with the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard, which was created more than 70 years ago for faster and more comfortable typing. For more information, you can read The Dvorak Zine, an introduction to the layout in comic form. Or, for a more traditional introduction, you can visit the Dvorak Simplified Keyboard article on Wikipedia.

All text, including the website code, was typed in either Notepad or Notepad++.

Bookmark Icon ("Favicon")

The icon for this page is the Sanskrit letter a (अ) on a blue background. It was made as a .png file in Adobe Photoshop and converted into a .ico file with the help of Favicon from Pics, a free to-.ico converter that provides both still and animated icons. You can read more about the utility at www.html-kit.com/favicon.
