  Indo-Aryan languages - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Indo-Aryan languages form a subgroup of the Indo-Iranian languages, thus belonging to the Indo-European family of languages.
The term Indic refers to the same group without the negative connotations of "Aryan".
The earliest attestations of the group are in Vedic Sanskrit, the language used in the oldest scriptures of India, the foundational canon of Hinduism known as the Vedas.

 Indic script blocks
Although the Indic scripts are often described as similar, there is a large amount of variation at the detailed implementation level.
Indic languages are syllabic in nature, and the inherent vowel is an important concept of a syllable (see below).
The treatment of combining characters in Indic scripts also necessitates the use of context-based rules in the font to ensure the correct positioning and behaviour of displayed glyphs (a glyph being the visual representation of an underlying character).

 Indo-Iranian -> Indic Group on Encyclopedia.com 2002   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The oldest written form of the Indic group is Vedic (or Vedic Sanskrit), in which the Veda were composed.
The principal modern Indic tongues include the Northwest Indic languages Punjabi and Sindhi; the central Indic languages Hindi and Urdu ; the East Indic tongues Assamese, Bengali (or Bangla), and Oriya; the West Indic language Gujarati; the South Indic tongues Marathi and Singhalese; and the northern or Pahari dialects or languages.
Thus, the fundamentally Indic vocabulary of Singhalese is influenced by the nearby Dravidian languages.

 Wikipedia:Enabling complex text support for Indic scripts - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
However, before Indic scripts can be viewed or edited, support for complex text rendering must be enabled on your operating system.
Downloading Internet Explorer 6.0 should enable you to view Indic scripts on these operating systems but you will not be able to edit any Indic text.
Mozilla Firefox does not support Indic scripts on these operating systems unless a modified version of the program is used, such as the one found here.

 IMC India - Western Indology versus the Indic Tradition:   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Indic thinkers find the sages in their own tradition—Vedic rishis, Vedantic sages or great yogis—to be deeper and more profound than the Greek philosophers, modern scientists or monotheistic theologians.
Indic civilization is not necessarily hostile to western civilization but it does proceed by different values and according to a different perception of humanity, nature and the universe, apart which we cannot make sense of it.
The Indic tradition sees nothing of lasting value to be gained by subordinating itself to current western civilization or allowing that to define and delimit it, reducing it to a mere sidelight to western culture.

Of the East Indic languages, Assamese is the tongue of 22 million people in Assam, and has a literature dating back to the 15th cent.
The leading West Indic language is Gujarati, with over 40 million speakers, chiefly in the states of Gujarat and Maharashtra in India.
Although it belongs to the Indic group, Singhalese is separated geographically from the other Indic languages of N and central India by an intervening region in S India, in which the Dravidian languages are spoken.

 The need for a new Indic school of thought   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
The important issues of Indic civilization today are framed according to the principles or biases of the Western school of thought.
The Indic tradition arose from the rishi tradition of spiritual endeavour, characteristic of the Vedic-Sarasvati culture and related cultures, reflected in the continuity of Vedic literature from the Vedas to the Mahabharata, Buddhist and Jain literature and the Puranas, which all reflect the same principles, peoples and dynasties of kings.
What India needs is the creation of a new Indic school of thought that is dynamic and assertive in the modern global context - one that can challenge Western civilization not merely in regard to the details of history or culture, but also relative to fundamental principles of life, humanity and consciousness.

 Challenges in Supporting Indic Scripts in the Solaris Operating System
Unlike Unicode, ISCII is an 8-bit encoding that uses escape sequences to announce the particular Indic script represented by a coded character sequence.
Unfortunately this is not the case with Indic scripts, where standards either do not exist or are in the process of evolving.
Because Indic scripts use a large number of combining characters, the development of a unique data representation standard will help simplify searching and sorting operations.

 Introduction to Indic languages : Globalizing your e-business   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Along with the number of languages and scripts involved, Indic languages provide challenges to developers because of their complexity and orthographic nature.
The basic phonetic components of Indic languages are vowels (called ‘swar’ in Hindi) and consonants (called ‘vyanjan’ in Hindi).
As additional experience is gained with the use of Unicode for Indic languages, refinements to the standard are being added for incorporation into future versions of the standard.

 Dharam Hinduja Institute of Indic Research
The overall theoretical aim of the IHMRP is to contextualise and clarify, and thus make explicit the contributions that the Indic traditions have made in the fields of modern health, medicine and wellbeing, and how these contributions have been altered, enriched, developed and (re)interpreted during such processes of propagation and acculturation.
The overall practical aim of the IHMRP is to gather, critically evaluate and eventually disseminate knowledge about how yogic and ayurvedic traditions have been, are being and can be adapted to modern needs and conditions, so as to be used efficiently and in discerning fashion for fostering human health and wellbeing, broadly understood.
The workshop set the foundations for the second Indic Health Conference, entitled Ayurveda: Modern and Global Identities, which took place at the Faculty of Divinity, University of Cambridge on 2-3 July 2004.

 An Etymology of the Word 'to fear' in Indic, Baltic and Slavic
The purpose of this paper is to suggest a historical connection between the Indo-European root for 'being' (*bhū-) and the widely represented Baltic, Slavic and Indic root for fear *(bhoy-).
In Old Indic the root is attested in various forms as far back as the Vedic hymns, e.g., (Book 1,154, 2) where Vishnu is compared with a 'dread beast' mrgó ná bhīmáh (Macdonell, 1917, 32).
These doublets became phonemic and it is common for the prevocalic zero-grade of a root to be represented in the daughter languages by the vocalic plus the consonantal reflex of the resonant, thus, e.g., Lith.

 Shaping: Indic OpenType specification
Then the Indic shaping engine splits matras that have components appearing on more than one side of the base glyph into the corresponding parts (pre-base, below-base, above-base or post-base parts).
Because glyph strings are obtained from reordered character strings, the features in an Indic font must be encoded to map reordered characters (and combinations of characters) to their corresponding glyphs.
All OTL processing is divided into a set of predefined features (described and illustrated in the Feature section of this document).

 The special features of Indic scripts
In this section, I will attempt to explain what makes Indic scripts "different", and what makes them so difficult to use as far as computers (especially text processing) is concerned.
In Indic scripts however, this is not the case.
Linguists describe these types of writing systems as "orthographic", which means that Indic scripts are a mixture phonemic (ie, where a basic character represents a single phoneme or a a basic unit of word distinguishing sound) and syllabic forms.

 Supporting Indic Scripts in Mozilla
Font Handling is an issue for Indic scripts due to lack of font  (repotoire, layout and encoding) standardization as well as a uniform typographic framework across Windows, Unix and Unix variants.

The effort involved in doing so is fairly trivial since ICU already supports Indic scripts and ICU layout cab be built separately of the parent ICU.
