Hare Krishna

Oh yeah I checked the site before. I didn't notice it has that.

This would belong to the tech section.

Govindaram, what kind of software do you use for producing your PDFs? Why can't you just embed regular diacritic fonts into your PDFs?

Hare Krishna,

It will contain song of Six Goswamis, i.e

Krsna Deva Bhavantam Vande
"I Praise You Lord Krsna"
from Stava-Mala by Srila Rupa Goswami

Krsna Prema Mayi Radha
Eight Verses Glorifying the Divine Couple
by Srila Jiva Goswami

But contain Mainly songs are by Narottam Dasa Thakur.

Anyway. To Madhava ji I use a Free PDF Programme using HTML:

Embed doesn't work. If I can't figure it out then I have to use non-diacrtics, but then I don't see the point, cause you won't be able to pronounce the words. Its Sanskrit! Not English! Any pointers?

Ps. I won't give up. I am just saying that.
Madhava - Sat, 25 Sep 2004 05:07:19 +0530
How about using the good old Microsoft Word for keying in your diacritics?
Govindaram - Sat, 25 Sep 2004 05:27:48 +0530


Madhava ji

I said they don't show up.

they look like this in pdf:

hare ka, hare ka, ka ka, hare hare
hare rma, hare rma, rma rma, hare hare.

Madhava - Sat, 25 Sep 2004 05:32:21 +0530
OK. So the font isn't embedded. If that free program has a feature for embedding fonts, activate that. If not, you'll need to be looking for a program that will embed fonts into PDFs. Adobe Acrobat will do that for you, if all else fails.

MMm ok

I tried everything. Just doesn't work. Embedding fonts just doesn't work. Oh well.

Thx anyway for the help. Goodbye
