PDF-engine XeTeX (4).

Velthuis maps

velthuis.map, velthuis-sanskrit.map and devanagarinumerals.map are taken
over from the Velthuis packet (7), much thanks to Zdeněk Wagner.

(7) http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/language/devanagari/velthuis

devanagarinumerals.tec is the simplest way to turn automatically
generated counters to Devanagari (XeTeX displays the numbers in
Devanagari while applications like Xindy could work with the original
Arabic numbering).

Since "~" expands to nonbreakable space it's important to set `~=12 in
the preamble (8).
