We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually
best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is
then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we
would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it
is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have
taken the trouble to respond to the query.

Subject:  electronic Sanskrit texts in need

Dear LINGUIST List colleagues,

We'd like to add Sanskrit to our collection of our data of 157 world
languages. We'd like to compare our data on the phonemic frequency of
these 157 world languages to Sanskrit. We have noticed that more often
than not, it is easier to feed some text in the computer rather than
to find it elsewhere. This time we'd like to feed in the computer the
First Song of the Sanskrit "Shriimad bhaagavatam".  The long vowels
will be shown as two vowels. What can you advise us?  Will it be
easier to feed the Sanskrit text or will it be easier to find it in
the electronic form?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon to  yutamb at hotmail.com

Yours sincerely Yuri Tambovtsev
