Firefox Extension

Me and Kshitij are working on a firefox extension Itranslator
that converts and selected itrans text to Unicode that is being
supported by Firefox (Better if pango enabled). Earlier we were using
a server which was hosting scrits for itrans to unnicode conversion.
But now (in Newer Version) we are doing this conversion with help of
Javascript which is part of extension itself. In javascript we have
made an array so that each character is mapped to unicode
character according to Itrans standard. The real fight was in mapping
of character where two or three character like ("kha", "cha")
combinely map to a single unicode character which causes
problem for other mapped character.
I would like to thank Harsh for helping us with his script he used in
message box at Varta
