We have wrapped our main font 'Akhil HE' in a WOFF and WOFF2 wrappers for this web-page.
This web-page contains text of a complex script (देवनागरी). Please load this page (that you are reading now) in different browsers for comparing/testing their capabilities in handling aforementioned Font that conforms to WOFF/W3C standards.
So ideally every browser should display (render) all the text (English as well as Sanskrit) on this page using our font 'Akhil HE'.
Most of the modern browsers are now beginning to support Web Open Fonts.
Firefox and Chrome downloads our font mentioned in the CSS ('Akhil HE')! Newer versions also typeset following complex text properly. Sometimes English text is displayed using browser's default font!
ॐ भूर्भुवः॒ स्वः॒
तत्स॑वितुर्वरे॑ण्यम् भ॒र्गो॑ दे॒वस्य॑ धीमहि। धियो॒ यो नः॑ प्रचो॒दया॑त्॥
ॐ भूर्भुवः॒ स्वः॒ तत्स॑वितुर्वरे॑ण्यम् भ॒र्गो॑ दे॒वस्य॑ धीमहि। धियो॒ यो नः॑ प्रचो॒दया॑त्॥
