Nepali language conjuncts::
You may need to know the different forms of Nepali language conjuncts before we show you how to type in Unicode environment.Two Unicode special formatting control characters play an important role in representing the different forms of Nepali language conjuncts:

1. 'zero-width joiner' (ZWJ)
2. 'zero-width non-joiner' (ZWNJ)

1. A Zero Width Joiner (ZWJ) is typically used to fuse two characters that normally do not form a ligature or a fused form.

2. A Zero Width Non Joiner (ZWNJ) is typically used to represent the separated form of characters that normally fuse together to form a ligature.

In the context of Nepali, the halant representation has an implicit behavior similar to zero-width joiner.

The ZWJ and ZWNJ, among other things, can be used to represent different forms of conjuncts as shown in the following example:

The ZWJ and ZWNJ, among other things, can be used to represent different forms of conjuncts as shown in the following example:

The ZWJ following the consonant+halant sequence (‘ka’+ halant in the example) represents the half-consonant form of the syllable (‘ka’ in the above example). The ZWNJ, on the other hand, is used in representing the split or separated form of the conjunct. When neither the ZWJ nor the ZWNJ appears following the halant character, the conjunct is shown in the customary full ligature form.

"ज्ञानी" शब्द प्रितीमा र युनिकोडमा लेखेर अभ्यास गर्नुहोस त, फरक आफैँ थहा पाउनुहुन्छ । केही विशेष अक्षरलाई प्रितीमा Alt+0000 गर्नुपर्ने झमेला घटाउनको लागी अधिकतम शब्दमा डेढ गुणा बढी key-stroke को भार थोपरिएको छ युनिकोड की-बोर्ड लेआउटमा, अशुद्धताको त कुरै नगरौं, "अङ्‍ग" शब्दमा 'ङ' अक्षरको मुनि 'ग' अक्षर झुण्डिनु पर्ने हो देवनागरी लिपीको शुद्धताको लागी, तर टाई सुट लगाएका विज्ञहरुले यो विषयलाई लङ्गौटी लगाइदिएका छन, तैपनि हाम्रो बाध्यता छ यो प्रयोग गर्नु, किनकी हाम्रो आफ्नो खुवि छैन

"ज्ञानी" शब्द
प्रितीमा‌= 1fgL (4 key-stroke, shift once)
रोमनाइज्ड युनिकोडमा= j/YanI (6 key-stroke, shift twice)

Traditional Unicode मा टाइप गर्दा एक्सेलमा Slash को लागि ctrl+/ ले काम गर्छ । तर एम एस वर्डमा काम गर्दैन । यो समस्या समाधान कसरी हुन्छ ?

MPP को Traditional Layout मा टाइप गर्न गाह्रो लागेको भए नयाँ लेआउट आफैले बनाउन पनि गाह्रो छैन । प्रीती कान्तिपुरसँग अझ मिल्दोजुल्दो नयाँ लेआउट बनेको छ, यसका बारेमा अझै बुझ्न वा डाउनलोड गर्न http://nepalitankan.blogspot.com/2013/10/nepali-traditional.html
