Jati and grantha....

Jaati is of well-known Indo-European derivation, with the Sanskrit root jan
from IE *gen.  This has given Greek genos (>English geneology) and Latin
genus.  It is also the source of English kin.  There is not the slightest
doubt of this -- comparative linguistics is as much a science as physics.

In any event, if the proposed standard does not include grantha letters
(including ks and sri), I cannot use it.  I want to put Bharathiyar's works
on the net, and those characters are necessary.  George Hart
