@ atullalit91

Instead of using any specific hindi font you can use global font which supports UTF-8
its helpful when your site visitors don't have particular font hindi font in their computer.It also able visitors to see your site without downloading any font or without setting into their computer.

for that if you are using windows then you have to setting into your computer in language setting.(with doing this you can see hindi font into your php editor insted of square boxes.)

if you want any more information or know how to setting into language setting into your pc then please let me know.I will give you that step to install.

I hope this will help you. :)

Excellent point.

If your site is going to have a mixture of languages or have an English and Hindi version, you need to think about how you are going to structure your pages.

If two versions - easier:

Ensure that your meta data is set up correctly:

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" dir="ltr" lang="en-GB" xml:lang="en-GB"> 
<head> 
<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> 
<meta http-equiv="content-language" content="en-GB" />

Do similar for Hindi.

Yes you should use two pages. And Ardav's comment about meta information is very important as from what I remember Search Engines use this in their algorythms to detirmine how appropriate a page is for the client.

Also, if you're having a think about font compatability perhaps the 'sifr' method might be an interesting read.

Hope this all helps :)

You need to set the meta data to Hindi for Hindi - the above meta data is for English.

Hi atullalit91

I think the best solution to your problem is to use WEFT for .eot files or Webfont Wizard for .pfr files.

This link should get you started.

http://www.bharatdarshan.co.nz/hindi_font_downloads.html has font downloads - but also an idea if your machine can display them. I'm using Vista - no problem seeing them.

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" /> 
<meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="hi" />

<title>Hindi Text Example</title>
</head>

<body>

</body>
</html>
