Unicode hyphenation patterns for Sanskrit and Prakrit in Devanagari,
Bengali, Kannada, Malayalam and Telugu scripts.

Created:         April 1st, 2005
First release:  June 8th, 2006
Revised:         (not yet)
Version:         0.1

Created by Yves Codet with Jonathan Kew's help.

These patterns are meant for XeTeX, a Unicode variant of TeX. After being
compiled into a format, these patterns can be activated with the command:

	\language=\sanskrit

In LaTeX, if your document is entirely in Sanskrit or Prakrit, you can write
the command in your preamble, for instance:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\setromanfont[Script=Devanagari]{Code2000}
\language=\sanskrit

\begin{document}

उद्दिष्टः समाहितचित्तस्य योगः । कथं व्युत्थितचित्तोऽपि योगयुक्तः स्यादित्येतदारभ्यते ।

\end{document}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

If there is another language in your source file, you can define a new
font instance and a new command, for instance:

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

\documentclass[12pt,a4paper]{book}
\usepackage{fontspec}
\usepackage[frenchb]{babel}
\setromanfont{Code2000}                                              % font
% "Code2000" with French hyphenation called by "Babel"
\newfontinstance\devanagarifont[Script=Devanagari]{Code2000}
\newcommand{\sk}[1]{{\language=\sanskrit\devanagarifont{#1}}}     % the
% same font with Sanskrit hyphenation called by the command
% "\language=\sanskrit"

\begin{document}

\sk{उद्दिष्टः समाहितचित्तस्य योगः । कथं व्युत्थितचित्तोऽपि योगयुक्तः
स्यादित्येतदारभ्यते ।}

La pratique de celui qui a l’esprit concentré vient d'être décrite.
Comment celui qui a l’esprit dispersé doit-il mener la sienne?
C’est ce sujet qui va être abordé.

\end{document}

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%

I never use plainTeX, so I don't know how to do the same with it. If a
plainTeX user is willing to send me the equivalents of the above, I'll be
grateful.
