[ WHAT IS PADMA PLUGGING :-P adma is a technology for transforming Indic text between
public and proprietary formats. The technology currently supports Telugu, Malayalam, Tamil,
Devanagari (including Marathi), Gujarati, Bengali, and Gurmukhi.
Indic scripts suffer from lack of standards support in various OS and platforms. As a result, many
public and proprietary schemes have been adopted over time by different groups and businesses.
Padma's goal is to bridge the gap between closed and open standards until the day Unicode support
is widely available on all platforms.
Padma transforms Indic text encoded in proprietary formats (ex: dynamic fonts) automatically to
Unicode. Padma also has support for transforming from ISCII and transliteration schemes like
ITRANS and RTS (Telugu only). ]
