You should now be able to refresh or reload this page in your browser, and the correct fonts should show up automatically. You should see them both above and in the sidebar. If necessary, you can refresh the page by clicking on a single or double-arrow symbol somewhere in the menu bar at the top of your browser window.

You can also test the font by going here: w3C test site for devanagari

If you prefer, or if the steps given here have not worked for you, you can go off-site and follow these instructions on the Devanagari help pages at Wikipedia. And/or if you would prefer to use a different Sanskrit font, then you can select from amongst the many listed on this page (hosted by WAZU Japan).

If you see the Sanskrit and transliteration correctly, then please go to Step 5: Selecting/testing your browser to familiarize yourself with a few browser issues.

If refreshing/reloading your browser once doesn't work, then try refreshing/reloading three or four times to help flush out your browser's cache. You should now be able to see some Sanskrit text and a transliteration appear on the right. If so, then please go to Step 5: Selecting/testing your browser to familiarize yourself with a few browser issues.

If that doesn't work, then close down your browser in order to clear out the cache. Then restart your browser and return to this site, and you should be able to see the Sanskrit and a transliteration clearly on the right. If so, then please go to Step 5: Selecting/testing your browser to familiarize yourself with a few browser issues.

If you still can't see the Sanskrit font, then try shutting your computer down altogether and restarting it. Then come back and try to view this page again. You should be able to see the Sanskrit and a transliteration clearly on the right. If so, then please go to Step 5: Selecting/testing your browser to familiarize yourself with a few browser issues.

If that still doesn't work, then load a word processor application of any kind (such as Word or Word Pad) that allows you to select what font you want to use, and make sure that the fonts are available as selections in that programme. If you don't see the fonts available, then you most likely have not installed them so please go very carefully through the above steps.

If you have confirmed that the fonts do exist on your system in a word-processing programme, but you still cannot see Sanskrit in your browser, then update your browser to the latest version. There is usually an option for this under the "Tools" or "Preferences" or "Help" or similar menu depending on your browser. You could also try a different browser altogether (there are some suggestions in Step 5 underneath). Another option is to reinstall your current browser in case it has become corrupted.

And if that still doesn't work … then there is no more help that can be given you here.
