hmm....i tried it and got a system error thrice ! 
/QUOTE : Sorry, a system error occurred
If you were just adding or changing something, Launchpad probably
hasn't recorded those changes. /UNQUOTE

The webpage displays only one language at a time and one has to use
the 'shift+arrow' keys to navigate through all the listed languages...
or is it just my browser's error ?

ok... i did  read-up a bit but am off to find out more :-) 
btw, what do you mean by upstream ? I am new in the GNU world and have
a lot to learn.

Is there direct keyboard support for typing ? 
Afaik, it works with gedit using drag>copy>cut+paste (very slow) but
being new to ubuntu-linux , maybe i am missing something !
I was told i need asian/indic script glyphs to directly type on the keyboard.  
I use Ubuntu 4.10 which has Unicode character map support but only for
full consonants.  We have many words where the following combination
is possible :
2 consonents + a vowel, or
half consonants + full consonant + vowel and others which is not
available with the current software.

I tried googling but it was more confusing as there are so many
software's, but i am not sure if they are supported by Ubuntu.  Gosh,
pen and paper rocks !
