This Index requires the above documents (plus a few JQuery library files) to be in same directory folder. The Siddhanta font best shows the Devanagari characters. Other Unicode fonts are adequate but Siddhanta is one of the few that displays the Vedic accent characters completely. Siddhanta can be searched, freely downloaded, and installed from the internet, including from www.UpasanaYoga.org.
If run from UpasanaYoga.org web site these requirements are automatically taken care of. The fonts will be loaded from the website instead of from your device.
