Comment 6 Rajesh Ranjan 2007-05-04 08:48:52 UTC
Following are the inconsistencies wrt image given in Comment #2
 (Given Image is not clear also!!)

  (">" "झ")				; 091D	in image झ्‌ shown 
  ("_" "द्घ")				; 0926 094D 0918		not according to given image
  ("E" "म्")				; 092E 094D		not mapped to any charactor in image
  ("`" " ़") 				; 093C		
  ("Q" "ो")				; 094B  		in image not mapped to any char.
  ("A" "।")				; 0964		in image it is mapped to " ा "
 ("\(" "\;")				but in image mapped with त्र्  so त्र is not mapped anywhere 
  ("-" "")				mapped to none but in image it is.
  ("|" "")				mapped to none but in image it is. Image not clear.
 ("Z" "।")   				not mapped in image but here it is with " । "

Halant is at two places:
 ("~" "्")				; 094D
  ("z" "्")				; 094D

Apart from the given image following charactors also need to be defined:
"ओ" "औ" "ऐ" "ऊ" "आ" "ई"  not present in keymap.  

Comment 7 ntakahas 2007-05-11 08:56:50 UTC
Since the Godrej layout is based on a mechanical typewriter, I imagine "ओ" is
composed by "अ" and "ो".  The same for the other missing characters.  However,
it is no more than my guess.  We need a clearer image file and the specification
of the input method (e.g. should "ि" be typed before a consonant?) to create an
input method for this layout.

Comment 12 Parag Nemade 2007-11-14 10:30:38 UTC
Closed as I can't find correct image to work on. I need some trusted resource
that says this is correct Godrej Typewriter keyboard image.
