ANNOUNCE: Article on Vedic Accents

In designing the SKT-series of Devanagari fonts, I found it
very difficult to get hold of basic information regarding
Vedic accentuation (both the symbols and their significance).
The information that I have managed to gather is presented
in a short article which discusses the accent changes that
arise in continuous speech (sa.mhitaa), their pronunciation,
and the various systems of notation. It is available at:
It is a 100-kbyte Postscript file that runs to six pages.
Comments, corrections, additions, etc. are most welcome.
