Be it on any operating system (except still, the Oriya, Sinhala and Tibetan scripts on Windows XP, even with the appropriate fonts, because the XP builtin version of Uniscribe has no support for these scripts, and Firefox still does not provide an alternative engine for these scripts with standard OpenType fonts; however these scripts may work on Vista's version of Uniscribe). Indic IME, a plugin for Firefox 1.0+ can help you write in many indian languages in your webpages. It is easy to install and works on all platforms where Firefox or other Mozilla-based browsers are running.
