Manoj,
I don't have an answer for you (sorry), but John O'Conner's Web site may be useful to you (if you haven't already found it).

Good Luck,
Avi.

Hi Manoj,

Actually, it is just a matter of having a font which supports the Hindu Unicode characters. Even with JDK 1.3, you should be able to support display of Hindi characters if you set the font of the component to a Hindi Unicode supporting font (e.g. Devnagri).

Best regards,
Abhik.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
