I am sorry for the confusion created by my words. No, you will NOT get the

Sanskrit text in Devanagari script on your display.  What I wanted to say
was -
I am writing the  Sanskrit text using ASCII (i.e. Romanized) encoding.  If
are using Latex or Tex document formatting system, then with a small
of work - mainly some control codes - and Charles Wikner's skt package,
can print my notes and they WILL contain the Sanskrit text in Devanagari.

Again I am sorry for a wrong impression being created.
I use this representation as the original Sanskrit text can be accurately
with Roman character set.
