I've been following this thread and the related critical edition
with some interest. I'm wondering, how have you found the new
input/translation method with "Shobhika Regular," a font a few of us
might be keen to use?

Best, Richard

Unfortunately some fonts don't work properly in ConTeXt. Noto Sans
is one of them. The accompanying serif font (Noto Serif Devanagari)
works just 
fine (mostly, there are problems with that as well). 

In this specific case, there does not seem to be any fix (at least
that I could 

I am trying to test many fonts and come up with a list of fonts which
partially work, don't work, etc. and fixes wherever possible.
