I can not see Bengali

This site has UNICODE encoded Bangla texts. If you are unable to view the Bangla contents or having any dificulty reading the texts, try the following in order:

  1. In your browser, set the Encoding to utf-8. For Internet Explorer this is found in View->Encoding  menu. In Firefix, you would find  View->Character Encoding. If this enables you to view the pages propely, you are done.

  2. If setup 1 does not solve the problem, you need to have " Indic Language Support " installed on your computer. Depending on the operating system of your computer the steps for installing the Indic Language support can be different. Some tutorials are available: Windows 2000, XP SP1  and XP SP2. For Linux and MacOS similar procedure is involved. You may need to restart your computer after installing the support package.

  3. After step 2, you should see the web pages but may be with a small font size. If this the case, then you need a good Bangla Unicode font. We have used AponaLohit font, developed by joomla-bd.org, which can be downloaded from here.

  4. After downloading and installing the fonts, you need to set your preferred font in the Browser settings. For IE, this is Tools->Internet Options, Fonts button in General Tab. From the dialog box, select Bengali as the language and the Font of your choice. For Firefox, go to Tools->Options, then Advanced button in Content tab. Choose language, preferred font and encoding (utf-8).
