Bangla script display help

This website has adopted Unicode (UTF-8) as the "encoding" scheme for its Bangla fonts. In order to view this website, you need to have your computer set up to see web pages encoded in Unicode Bangla scripts. To do this, you need to have a Unicode capable browser and Unicode Bangla fonts. Modern browsers following open web standards like Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Safari, and current versions of Internet Explorer support viewing Bangla scripts (and indic scripts in general) once you have enabled unicode support in your operating system and installed the fonts.

The following image shows you how a correctly enabled computer will render the Bangla script:
চিত্র:Example.of.bangla.rendering.png

ক + ি → কি

If the rendering on your computer matches the rendering on the image, then you have already enabled complex text support for Bangla and should be able to view text correctly in Bangla script. However, this does not mean you will be able to edit text in Bangla. To edit such text you need to install the appropriate keyboard software on your operating system.
